a camera and a microscope, you can do it already..

I hope that in near future I can make microscopic photos

Tomorrow I will look for an apparatus or whatsoever this is called ;)

I am constantly in awe at your Corticioid postings – maybe someday they will strike my fancy, but for now there are many other things to figure out in CA.

If you look at my postings,

you will see that I am into Boletaceae and Corticiaceae. Ok, my postings are “universal” but those are my preferred ones.
As for the size of fruitbodies, there are always small ones and big ones as with humans, animals, plants and everything :)

You and Noah both…

I rather like Agaricus, but then again, CA has some really cool ones.

but I agree that when I saw them in the field I didn’t suspect them to turn out A. campestris but microscopy and macrochemical reaction are fitting. However there is a similar A. pseudopratensis which I posted earlier. And there are some varieties of A. campestris too. Furthermore rich soil was present at the location.

Isn’t that annulus a bit prominent for A. campestris? Not to mention they look a bit firm, stocky, and don’t have a tapering stem. Compare with observation 87762, they don’t look like the same species to me.
