Mushroom Spore Prints
According to the chart, getting firm specimens is really important when trying to get a good spore print. Some of these mushrooms were obviously older, being past their time to make spores and they decomposed into water. But a few of them made beautiful spore prints! I am excited to add this to our 'something to do' list.
I honestly didn't realise that mushroom undersides could look like this. I was so used to the gills. Even teacher learned something today!
