Microscopic features

Under the microscope the derma and floccules are composed of parallel hyphae with interweaving in lower layers. Trouble is I don’t see any hymenial surface basidial or otherwise; no basidia, asci or perithecia. Everything but the dermis seems gelatinized.
Substrate is an acorn cap.
