Notes: Found at the base of a spruce tree. I guess this is the real L. clypeolaria, since what we have in the west is L. mangispora and L. spheniscispora. This one has a large clear veil. At some point I should get the spores under the spores and see what they look like…
9/4/2008 – From looking at spores on Aug 30
Put some veil tissue under the scope to look for spores. The micro-shot is of spore at 1000x in Meltzer’s. The spores are elongated, pointed and dextrinoid.
A few spores were measures and was found the ave spore : length – 13.37 +/- 0.65 (err 0.20) um, width – 5.32 +/- 0.26 (err: 0.09) – q : 2.52 +/- 0.15, on 12 spores.
I should compare this to the spores for L. magnispora from the west coast here.
