Spores dimensions.

I was not aware of the fact that are so many species of Scleroderma with a well developed pseudostipe. Clearly I knew S. verrucosum, but having measured the spores, these reveal to be much larger than in that species. Then I found other similar species: S. aerolatum (which is general presents a short pseudostipe), S. fulvatum and S. meridionale. Among them only this last species has spores with dimensions similar to what I found (see Ref.), reason that lead me to propose this name for my specimen. All the other species have much smaller spores (with maximum values below to the mininum that I measured).
