Did you look at the cystidia?

Personally I would like to see more details on what makes a Pholiotina separate from Conocybe, which I’ve had some details written in discussion. But it would be good to see some details, as in photos of cystidia shape, which I believe is the only difference between the two genera? So, somewhere there are some photos or drawings to refer to when putting a genus name on these.
