Unusual poisoning in which 15 yo small dog was found collapsed while playing with mates. Ingestion of mushrooms was suspected; spores found on mushrooms in vomit look like Inocybe but could be another mushroom. As Inocybe is toxic, this is suspected. Spores look the same color in three stains, in one photo appear to have a dark brown color. Club wants to sequence the mushroom for identification to species level. Note list of possible contaminants after the photo of the mushroom sample.

spore in the middle looks like an Entoloma spore, angular with a nucleus (oil drop? I never see “oil drop” written in a description of Entoloma spores. But the centrally delineated area is a typical trait of Entoloma spores). The other two spores in this photo look like Inocybe spores, nodulose. But, the one in the middle may appear as it does because of perspective. I think most (if not all) of the spores seen are Inocybe spores. I wonder if being (partially) digested could alter spore morphology?
Did you rule out some kind of Entoloma?
