When: 2009-08-30

Collection location: Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave in NE PA

No specimen available

Been looking at spore samples for flavoconia and elongata trying to get a handle on q values. This sample shows a few rather elongated spores, lots of broadly elliptical ones, and some subglobose. Mean q value seems to be in the area of 1.3. Interesting how spore shape varies considerably for these types.
