These had most of the characteristics of Pluteus petasatus including ovoid to subglobose spores that were very granular. However, many of the spores were larger than the reported 7.5 microns. The photo shows the wide range of spore sizes, many of which appeared to be in the 7.5 to 11.0 micron range across the long diameter.
