Spore print photo…

I think there’s some light reflecting off the background, which creates the impression that the background is brownish. So it’s difficult to comment upon the print color. Also, the print is a bit thin.

Is it possible to print out the MO page that appears when one creates a comment? The background on this comment page is a nice flat black that would serve as a perfect medium for collecting a dark print like this.

a Panaeolina print will show a very dark purple tint. A black Panaeolus print will show no color against the black, almost disappearing.
