I did a spore measurement on these, and the lengths/widths I observed did not exceed 9/5. This seems a better match for limonella. (My old scope has a micrometer in it… good enough to get measurements.) I have looked at spores from what I had IDed as aurivella in the past, and there were usually some up near 10/6.

Also, the gill spacing on this obs looks a bit on the wide side for aurivella. This is what actually first caught my attention.

How do you separate this from P. aurivella?
