Although this species is sometimes identified as A.
jacksonii in the field or from photographs, they
can be separated by the amount of yellow on the
cap of A. sp-W15 and the absence of orange or
orange-red felted scraps in on the stem.—R. E. Tulloss

The material examined to date was dried prior to
spore development or prior to maturity of most of the
hymenium. Probably as a consequence, the distribution
of measured spore lengths lacks a high value tail.
In turn this implies that the average length and (very
probably) the average Q values presented above are lower
than they would be if data had been take from mature
material or a spore sprint from such material.

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.
