send me Meltzer’s through the mail? Thanks for the suggestion Terri/Donna. That’d be great if it works for me.

Spores look similar to what I see on Mushroom Expert for Lyophyllum geminum.

kinda difficult to describe. Some exhibit pip-shaped/lacrymoid profile, but others show tapering/narrowing on two ends. Rhodocollybia butyracea has spores that are similar. But I don’t think this is R. butyracea. Looks somewhat different, and in my experience butyracea has a pinkish spore print. This print was pure white.

Wish I had some Meltzer’s. My MD is willing to write a script. But I can’t find a pharmacy willing to fill it.

Spore print white.

Entoloma was my first guess.

Tried to find some spores on a gill-smash mount. Maybe a few globose spores observed… not sure. No angular spores observed. But a nice thick white print has formed; I’ll put some under the scope later tonight.

I’m thinking maybe Lyophyllum.
