spore size would rule out Hymenopellis sinapicolor

which has spore sizes of 9 -12 × 7 -9 um, as opposed to my collected specimen, which was 13.5 -18 × 8.5 -11 um (Peterson lists (12) 15 -19 × 8 -11.5 for H. incognita).

Also, I didn’t mention in my original post, but when I measured spores, I also checked the cheilocystida and pleurocystida, and what I observed fit, or was pretty close, to Peterson’s description and diagram in his book.
