The upper image shows a common sample often found in a cluster. The middle image is a spore I call the cannon ball. It comes in different sizes, always perfectly round and very dense. I have been able to penetrate it with a very bright lamp and long exposure. The lower image shows an association that may be part of the spore’s natural structure or a chance fall of two separate spores in the sampler.
