Remarks (public):The Netherlands' collection is poor in specimens and did not show cheilocystidia. Some extralimital collections, however, have scattered cylindrical cheilocystidia, 25-50 x 6-15 µm. The colour of the lamella is variable also, viz. from almost purely white to distinctly blue when young.
