He tratado de hacer mas tomas con el microscopio y salen casi iguales, son muy pequeñas, de forma irregular, hialinas…no reaccionan con iodo…

can you describe the shape?

photo three still looks different, but have it your way.

which one did you scope? are those spores in your last photo? can you describe their size, ornamentation and amyloidity?

Las 4 fotos fueron tomadas en el mismo sitio, en un area de menos de 1 metro cuadrado. La foto 3 es la unica tomada desde arriba directamente, las demas son laterales, tal vez por esto no se ven las ramificaciones terminales.
