Observation 63607: Inocybe pudica Kühner
When: 2011-02-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: cap surface smooth and silky, dry. Pileus separating easily at margin. Entire mushroom white – gills, cap, stem. Flesh pallid. Two slight orange bruises from handling the cap surface.
Spore deposit brown, spores ‘oblong to elliptical’ (I’m not certain mounted in water shows me what the spore’s true nature is).
Pleurocystidia shown in observation. Not able to see Cheilocystidia. I included the microscopic views.
Compared with many photo’s here on MO.

Lol!
Yes! Let’s hope it’s not the water!

Although my scope has a filter wheel and some touch screen options for effect, I don’t think I used one here. I usually leave the diaphragm on the default 6mm setting.
It does look green though, hope it’s not the water……:)

Britney,
What do you use to get that green tint to your microscopic photos?
Do you edit the photos or use a green filter with your microscope?
