Collection location: Clam Beach County Park, McKinleyville, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Byrain

Specimen available

Notes:
Growing on a few old coniferous logs at the campground.

Spores 7-septate
Spore range = (20) 22 – 27 (28) x 7 – 9 µm
Spore Average = 24.5 × 7.8 µ
Q range = (2.22) 2.75 – 3.57 (3.86)
Q average = 3.16
20 spores measured.

I think the spores are larger than the literature lists because I measured secondary ballistospores from the hymenium.
