and for much of your mushroom hunting, some basic macro photography is all you’ll need, first and foremost of which is a photograph of the fertile surface (gills in agarics, pores in boletes, etc.) see the following link for more information:

I wish I could go back in time and carry a microscope down the trail with me, maybe in my retirement time travel will be invented. ;)

I am sure learning a lot of know defining characteristics and new names for what I have been looking at in solitude for years.

without seeing them under a microscope first ;)

thanks for the clarification.

by the way, your ID here will forever remain suspect until or unless you can provide more photos of the fruiting bodies, namely the underside.

It’s main focus is galerina, but then I remembered seeing the B. citrina in it too.
