Old notes (August, 1987) are here transcribed at the request of Paul Hamilton Scott.
In reviewing my notes on this species, I don't recall why I didn't choose to identify the present collection as A. chlorinosma. The following figure provides a comparison of the sporographs of the present species and A. chlorinosma.

Information to support the viewer in reading the content of "technical" tabs
can be found here.
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.
