I will look for clamps in the gill hyphae
not sure if it was growing on conifer or deciduous debris,

The thing with clamps, esp. on the outer most layer of hyphae, is that you should see them, or not. If you need to search for more than 5-10 mins, you should assume there aren’t clamps. But this is only on the outer most layer, and really squash it to separate the hyphae. The more inner hyphae it can be hard to separate the hyphae enough to see the clamps, or the clamps if they exist are kinda squished in and small. The outer most layer should be rather easy.
I should try and find examples, I’m sure I’ve posted a few…
things that are potentially clamps, but if you only found one of them and you searched hard, then I wouldn’t put too much weight on its presence.
clamp connection in the last microscopic pictures of the hyphae I uploaded? I only found one of them,
