The mushrooms in this collection are not mature.

So far, no spore drop. But I did get to see a few spores under the scope by mounting a little piece of gill. The spores seen in the newly posted photo are probably smaller than they would be at maturation. But, the longest one I could find is smaller than 6 mu. So this favors squarrosoides. Also, there appears to be a lot of cystidia. Not sure if the ones seen in the photos are pleuro- or cheilo-, as the very narrow immature gills were difficult to work with.

I don’t recall these mushrooms being viscid or sticky at the time of collection. But I may not have checked.

I think they are squarrosoides. But it would be nice to see some mature spores.

One of the club members took this collection.

If he still has some material, I’ll try to get a look at the spores.
