Another hypothesis

Your micro is fine especially if you are a newby to this sort of study. You will find that it is often the case that things you see down the scope do not transfer well to photo, but sometimes photos can show up more detail than you see.
If you saw a mixture of septa up to and beyond 7 then that with everything else makes me happy with G fallax. G fallax often produces lots of no.

Hello Malcolm

It’s the first time I see and test this kind of fungi. My micro is weak (student grade) so it’s difficult sometimes to take photos (I see better than I can show and sometimes I don’t see at all).
I found few with septa, but counted 7 or more on them, it was not easy to see septa, maybe I’ve seen them too soon. Took only one blurried photo, but with this spores average would it be another hypothesis? What do you think?

Thanks for the photos. One thing that is not easily visible is the number of septa in the mature spores.

I’ll happily remove my genus suggestion If you have done the microscopy.

I’m processing micro photos, but micrography was done on this.

Microscopy was most likely done.

I believe Elsa does a good amount of in depth microscopy based on her activity here on MO

Micro needed

Although it looks good for G fallax macroscopically there are quite a few others out there and it would need microscopic examination to be sure.
