definitely not chalk white—had some yellow tones so I called it cream. It wasn’t a very thick deposit so I think that affected it as well.

I’ve always observed a yellow spore print…

for C. robusta. I think it may be necessary to collect the print on a white background in order to see the pale yellow hue.
