Coprinopsis variegata gill surface

Post by lkudzma »

This is a no coverslip 250x super macro of the gill surface of the mushroom Coprinopsis variegata. The spores are still in bunches on the basidia and the protruding pleurocystidia are standing tall. The gill surface dried and shriveled a minute after the shots.
