spore print, for what little print it provided in a 24 hour period. Thanks for the suggestions.

I think he means the spore color in mass.

What is the color of the spores from a spore print? You don’t need a scope for that, and that with the decurrent gills will start to give you a direction with these.

Oh, wait there it is? A sparse yellow/buff/tan? Um, with the decurrent gills, look for things in Lepista? Some section of Clitocybe perhaps.

Sorry, Alan…

Being a fully retired bum, I currently have no scope with which to analyze spores.

But it is on the wish list!
