I don’t really have any reagents apart from KOH.
When I first found these I thought it might be a Hygrocybe species but now I’m not so sure, the spores are so small, or should I say my microscope is not good enough:)

Interesting…

These are pretty neat. Was there any reactions to Meltzer’s in any tissues or spores?
