Recognized by sight: The species concept of Agaricus (Panaeolus) cinctulus is based on a drawing made by Bolton in 1791. No type collection exists. Since it is not possible to know whether Bolton’s species was Panaeolus subbalteatus, P. olivaceus or P. fimicola, I consider Panaeolus cinctulus to be a nomen dubium.
Based on microscopic features: The gill faces need to be checked for sulphidia; the presence of these would indicate that it is probably Panaeolus fimicola.

I think you mean a 100x objective, oculars are usually 10×.

Good idea…

Sounds like a good plan. Make sure you have a good 100x ocular to see the spores well, and tell the surface ornamentations there. Also make sure you have a reticule, to measure spore sizes. Those don’t cost that much, and makes the difference between a useful scope, and one that is not so much…

I’m planning on it…

Even after buying a microscope, I keep running into delays. It’d be nice to be able to use it already. Currently waiting on my replacement from the seller (Hopefully working this time).

Ok, you have a photo of the mushrooms, and a spore print. Now we just need a photo of the spores here, and it will be a nice complete obs. to compare to others.
