Spore morphology

as seen with the SEM and then re-examination with the light microscope has caused me to revise my original hypothesis on A. asper, A. occidentalis et al. There is another entity that fits into this group. The general overall macromorphology is very much the same. I’ll post some observations shortly. Thank you.

Thank you!

So you should propose this name because it is yours.

is what I would call this thing at the moment, Gerhard, and that is a nom. prov. for me. If Watling included it in his Cooloola papers under another name or “sp. no.??”, then that is another thing to check out.

The SEM of the spores of A. asper show a smooth plage. SEMs of A. occidentalis show an ornamented plage. Macroscopically, A. occidentalis is ‘redder’ in the pileus. Based on what I know now, A. asper occurs in eastern and western Australia. A. occidentalis is only in the west.
