Notes: A couple of these were growing on a well-rotted branch in a wooded area of the park.
Brown cap 12 cm across.
Pink free gills.
White solid stem with darker flecks, 10 cm long, 1.2 cm diameter though a bit wider at top and at base.
Tall horned cystidia – which give the mushroom its common name apparently.
Basidia 4-spored (first time I’ve ever found any!).
Pink spore ptint. Smooth elliptical spores measured 5-8 × 5-6 microns

That autostacker is amazing!
Thanks Rocky… I’m learning all the time how to (a) find those little microscopic features that are so important to ID a mushroom and (b) photograph them. Still a long way to go, but your comments like yours encourage me to persevere. Best wishes, Martin
Not a micrograph, but a stack of photos taken from the microscope with slightly advancing focus for each that were combined with CombineZP. No fog, only uneven illumination, but all the same I did rather like the effect!
Or the surface of Jupiter!? Where on earth did you find a microscopic fog machine?
