Measuring them could be a tricky business. If I were to randomly measure 10-20 spores (the first ones I clap my eyes on), it’s likely I won’t get the full extent of length/width range. Searching for the smallest/largest spores (5th & 95th percentile) takes a while because (1) there are very few of them and (2) you need to convince yourself you definitely got both far ends of the spectrum. :-)

Yeah, I should have caught it…

That little twist at the stipe base with the rhizos seems pretty characteristic also.
First time I’ve seen it tho and the spore #s initially threw me off.

You’re welcome, Ron

This one is not too difficult to ID… after seeing it a few time in the woods. I am a bit surprised, however, you didn’t succeed in keying it out in BENA. It looks somewhat similar to H. subglabripes, but I reckon you don’t see that one in TX for it’s a northeastern/boreal taxon.

Thanks Igor,

At first I thought the spores were too short per BENA, but Snell & Dick list them as 13-21 X 5-7 microns. Everything else fits pretty good.
