If you look at my image in full size the measurements should be easy to read. I got about 13.4um X 9.1um on average of 31 spores, also this slide was made from a spore print of one of the specimens and not one location on the specimen. Thanks.

Spore range?

I’m not to squint and do your own work for you…

Also, you should measure at least 20 spores and not all from one location on the gill.
