If you have photos of microscopy, it would add to the mystery

I was under the impression that the seeds of the “Monkey Whistle” tree looked more like the substrate in this observation:


kind of ice cream cone shaped. Either way, I’ve been curious to know the taxon for that tree for some time. Google searches have so far come up empty handed.

this is the fruit of the monkey whistle tree, and I believe has pink spores which are angular under the micro. Id say Entolomataceae, based on this, with pretty high confidence
