but last fall in October-November there was a short aspect where there it grew abundantly. But I will not rule out that this is another species. I say it over and over again I am no expert in gilled mushrooms. In fact I am now worse than before since I am dealing with all this other stuff. Brown spored mushrooms and Entolomataceae are very complicated to me. But some of them get ID’d by experts like Hausknecht. Usually I give credit to this in the notes here.

It’d be good to get more detail if possible, esp. with this one. There isn’t much out there on G. pumila really. These look rather light colored, and more like one from section Tubariopsis. But since there aren’t that many photos of G. pumila, who knows?

I already tried to do so,

but it didn’t work out. The image is way too small, you cannot see any clear details. But maybe I just do not know how to do that well?

Just use a tripod and place the camera right above the eyepiece and shoot in auto mode. Maybe change the white balance to “light bulb” – or whatever choice you have to make the colours cooler. What you see in the microscope is what you get in the photo.

still no possibility for micro shots. I was at the shop but they need to order themselves. No notes on Galerina, gilled mushrooms not my faves. If I find time I could re-do mic and post it.

Any more details -

More details on this one? Love to see shots of the cheilocystidia if possible. What were the details on the spores here?
