A spore print

is a copy of the spores on or in the fertile surface of a mushroom. To take one from a gilled mushroom simply put one mushroom on a piece of white paper and another on black or brown paper. Check your papers after a few hours or a day later and observe the spore color. Example: If your mushroom is a pleurotus species you would have a whitish print. If a Crepidotus species the print would be brownish. If you only have one mushroom, cut it in half and lay the pieces gills down on you papers. You can also use glass or clear plastic to obtain spore prints. Gills down and pores down for polypores.
