Cool, funky spores

Globose to subglobose spores ornamented with meaty warts that look like rounded bumps or thick ridges/fins. I didn’t get a full appreciation of this interesting topography until the spores started to tumble around in KOH under the slip cover as I moved the scope lens. These would look scary through a SEM. :)
