but still at too low a resolution to check for key characters. the one I’m after in this case is the presence or absence of serrations at the gill edge. whatever your camera is, I’m positive it produces larger images than you’re uploading. it might be a settings issue…

Sorry Danny, I can’t remember. Now I know what to look for and record when photographing fungi for ID purposes, I’ll do better in future.
