Noah, I assume you mean the 2 specimens

that are 2nd and 3rd from the right in the 2nd photo.
You are quite possibly right but I did take the precaution of mixing spores from 3 different caps when I did the microscope work. The spores of P. rifflipes are reported as ~ 6.9 X 4.3 microns. None of my (limited) measurements fell into that range. I’m sure I included one of the suspect two in that mixture.
They were growing together but I guess you may force me to specifically measure the spores of one of 2 to convince you.

There are two P. rifflipes in there…
