Coniophora puteana under the lens

From Calais Muir, 24/11/2015

I'm still not entirely sure when a "cystidium" is not a cystidium but have a feeling it relates to its origin within the hymenium. The thin elements here, which are not considered cystidiua, I suspect originate from the subiculum - the area below the hymenium, although that could well be wrong!

Long cylindrical basida - c.100u

Olive green and large spores - thick-walled
No clamps on basidia

"Cystidial elements"

More thin cyctidia-like elements
