spore sizes of very confidently IDed mushrooms with their reported spore sizes, I have come to the conclusion that the micrometer seen in this spore photo does not show correct measure. These comparisons have led me to estimate a +17% correction factor. In this case, these spore lengths average about 15 mu, which agrees with the reported length for H. udum. q ~ 2.5 is also in line with H. udum. Given the specific habitat, I think this collection represents H. udum.
