Notes: Plenty of material to demonstrate this lepidellas typical macro-character….a rooting, dog-legged stipe! Also exhibits what Rod Tulloss calls “the yellowing disease”, a fairly recent occurence in Eastern (and even some Western, collected and documented by me) lepidellas.
Spores amyloid, phaseoform (kidney shaped), 9-14 × 5-7

Did the kidney shaped spores come from one of the yellowing specimens? Usually, this species has straight-sided narrow spores with an average Q of around 2.2+/-.
Sometimes the yellowing syndrome seems to contribute to irregular or stunted spore shape/size.
