You don’t need to get a spore print, most Galerina are so thin and small, like you saw they just dry out before you get a print most times. Take your micro-fine tweezers, and grab a small piece of the veil tissue. That will have plenty of mature spores for you. If they are still smooth, that is kinda interesting. If you can, try and get a photo of the cystidia also. Not that you’ll get a species name out of that, it would just be interesting…
Did you do a Meixner test for amatoxins on these guys?
Yes Douglas, this is a shot of a gill fragment. I did not get a proper spore print from this guy. The mushroom is less than 1 cm in diameter, and it dried in the bag before I got to it. Accept for being smoother, the spores are pretty close to G. autumnalis. I did not see any of the spindle shaped cystidia characteristic of G. autumnalis.
How are the spored different? I’m not sure I can tell from the photos, but you mean that the spores are not really that roughened? That happens, but it looks like most of the spores have a plage at least. Are these spores from the gill? It can happen in Galerina that spores from the gill aren’t fully mature and they don’t appear roughened. The attached Galerina spores are smooth when they start out, and develop the roughened surface at maturity.
Today found the exacts same mushroom growing on wood spore print a rusty brown typical Galerina
wood inhabiting Galerinas in the fairly early spring.
