When: 2014-07-07
No herbarium specimen

Notes: > A mature and immature specimens growing in grass/moss under old oaks.
> Spore print en masse = B-C
> Microscopy:
[20/1/1]; L x W = 7.0-8.8 (-9.1) x (5.3-) 5.6-6.5 (-7.4) um; mostly broadly ellipsoid; some subglobose spores present, too.
L x W = 7.8 × 6.1 um
Q = (1.11-) 1.19-1.42 (-1.58)
Q = 1.28
Isolated blunt warts with a few scattered connectors

> The spore print was treated with 5% Lugol’s and allowed to stand for a few minutes. The slide was then placed in a sunny spot and the solution was allowed to evaporate over 10-15 min. The spores were “reconstituted” with water and looked bluish gray (just like in Meltzer’s) at 100×.
