Olive text indicates a specimen that has not been thoroughly examined (for example, for microscopic details) and marks other places in the text where data is missing or uncertain.
The following material is based on original research of R. E. Tulloss.
dark gray over disc, pale gray elsewhere; context ??; margin short striate (0.15 - 0.25R), nonappendiculate; universal veil as thick floccose-felted warts, pale gray, probably darkening with age,at times confluent unevenly distributed.
white in side view.

with gray surface layer breaking up into dark fibrils after handling; exannulate; universal veil originally saccate and white, sometimes breaking up into patches and becoming gray to dark gray with age.
Each spore data set is intended to comprise a set of measurements from a single specimen made by a single observer;
and explanations prepared for this site talk about specimen-observer pairs associated with each data set.
Combining more data into a single data set is non-optimal because it obscures observer differences
(which may be valuable for instructional purposes, for example) and may obscure instances in which
a single collection inadvertently contains a mixture of taxa.
