Noah, I did look at them. Did you???

The spores were 1 micron and about 1 micron, based on the size of your bar (1 bar = 11.2 microns; 1 bar – 1.1 microns). That’s why I questioned your results.

Now you say “45-60 microns across, with 2 layered walls 4-6 microns thick”.

I agree they look like Endogone.

Daniel, did you look at these??? They have spores 45-60µm across, two layered walls 4-6µm thick…

Not Endogone.

While “Key to Spores of the Genera of Hypogeous Fungi…” says there are 9 species, the spore size seems to rule this out. Spores should be 27-150 × 27-120 microns; one to 2-layered, 2-11 microns thick.

Please re-check your spore measurements. Does not readily match anything.
