single dimension, not single spore

as in spore length and only spore length. from what I understand both spore length and width, plus hair length/width and paraphysis length/width, all factor into telling Scutellinia species apart.

One spore?

Who said it was a SINGLE spore measurement? It was an average of several spores.
