I am just starting to learn the Lepidellas, so your advice just saved me from torturing myself with a scope on this one.

may be too late for this guy

When a Lepidella gets a striate margin, it’s getting old. Not only is it hard to determine from a picture, but its spores will probably be significantly smaller than usual. Also the length/width ratio will shift downward in old material because the length gets shorter “faster” than the width value drops.
