on the gill face.

The ruler indicates measures smaller…

than actual size. By comparing with lots of spores of mushrooms that I know very well, I have decided that one should add about 17% to the measurements indicated. That would put most of these spores in the 8×5 range, with a few a bit smaller.

I think I still have some of this material. If I get a chance tomorrow, I’ll see what I can find with the scope.

Thanks for the suggestion, Irene.

how to read the ruler, but if the spores are around 8×5 microns, this could be Inocybe sindonia.

I favored the “Inocybe” proposal. But the grayishness in the thin spore print,the veil remnants, and the pale young gills caused me to wonder about this maybe being something along the lines of P. candolleana.
