I returned twice to the site in 26/11 and 01/12, I gathered new samples and observed them under a microscope.

Thanks, Irene.

macroscopically it seems to me L. fragilis, which will be the first time for me. The first attempt to look at the spores didn’t succeed, maybe due to youngness. I’m waiting an opportunity to look at the spores again.

Why not Badhamia? Do you have an opportunity to check on them again?
