Thanks for that info.and comments. (all taken onboard). I will add it to my notes headlines when doing a write up. I do sometimes cut the specimen and should do it with each file loaded. Still in the learning curve. Comments are always appreciated. I started to photograph spore prints, but had no real comments, so just did the notes. White balance and calibrated monitors help in colour, but I am never sure what the viewer is seeing on their monitor, or if it is calibrated and a good quality monitor. Life with true colour representation is difficult..
Many thanks kk

Hi Ian

Photo of spore print would be useful – the shade can assist with getting to genus. If spore print dark brown, then suggests Agaricus. The lamellae attachment is also useful to know for this genus – would be free. A cross section down through the middle of the fruit-body, photographed from the side, is good to show lamellae attachment to the top of the stipe.
