Spore prints any use for those of us without scopes?

I think the thick brownish base and white/cream-colored branch tips are consistent for this species. Also the spores for this species are rather distinctive, having long spines.

Obs. 86934 was also on soil under Eastern Hemlock and hardwoods.

a Ramaria that I found in Culpeper, VA: Observation 86934. Is the pale lavendar color diagnostic of grandis?
