Jonathan M is right – 50 C should be just fine to have made an herbarium specimen.
If you can send it to someone who can give us microscopic details and maybe a sequence that’d be great!

if they are dried properly, the microscopical element should be present (albeit dead)

Hi Danny, pretty interesting, isn’t it. I did collect the specimen but was immediately dried in an oven at 50C. before I had time to look it over under a microscope. Now I am not sure if I can still recover any spores. Will be going back to the site though, I hope I can still find fruiting bodies.

this looks very special. can you revisit the collection and take closer photos? do you have access to a microscope? can you preserve and send material?
