thanks. I’ll take note of that and hope to find some more this year.

The species name “elongata”…

refers to the spores, which have a larger Q that flavoconia.

Thanks so much, Dave. I really wasn’t sure and it’s good to know that a spore print would help in the future. Thanks for the info!

Looks more like A flavoconia to me…

although macro-features constitute a questionable means of distinguishing A. flavoconia from A. elongata. Recording spore dimensions (in particular the mean ratio of l/w) is currently regarded as constituting the only reliable criterion.
