When: 2010-01-15

Collection location: San Geronimo, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These were similar to what I posted on MO 32024. These had somewhat less blunted branch tips and the branching was a little less.
Looking at the spores through a microscope is like looking at a tropic fish tank. They are all similar but vary in interesting ways. These are very similar to those from the previous observation but on average a little smaller (14.5-17.0 × 6.3-7.9 microns). They still appear to be somewhat wider than reported for this species but the variations seem high and immature spores may account for lower overall values. The spores I measured from both observations were from a spore print and It seemed that the spores looked smaller from a sectioned portion of the branch.
