Spores from the dried mushroom…

had become irregularly shaped and somewhat collapsed. So I didn’t get any decent info from looking at them.

I think the abrupt bulb with the UV remnants on the shoulder is a function of the way the lower 1 cm of stipe base was buried. I see lots of very small (presumably) flavoconia. Tiny specimens of flavorubens seem to be uncommon.

Two additional photos.

But the one with the desired view is out of focus.

I still have the mushroom and will get around to looking at the spores.

I think I have a few additional photos.

I’ll check later tonight. Perhaps more importantly, I think the specimen is still lying on a table at home. So maybe I can convince a few spores to appear under the scope. Flavorubens has generally longer spores with larger quotient than flavoconia.

The bulb in this observation, with it’s defined shoulder and the cemented UV remnants make me think A. flavorubens. Got a shot of the annulus?
