I am working on getting a good scope. Don’t have a method to measure with the one I have, but I guess it would be fairly easy to get the stuff. My scope is inverted, so I can’t move the stage. Makes it hard to make fine adjustments.

Hi Martin, there are other species of Hypomyces, particularly H. microspermus that is also common, that looks the same. Difference is in the spore size and shape.
