I would recommend that you get one of those folding scopes. Not only are they ridiculously cheap (less than $2, American), but they actually work! Just had the chance to try them out myself last week. I am hooked!

I have only a very weak microscope available, but in future I’ll be sending sample specimen and my spore prints to the University of Free State for DNA extraction. I cant wait for our next mushroom season!

Sorry, no spore prints made, at the point of observation I thought it was just another Lepista sp.!

Is it possible

To see the spores?
