Description: Original observation #5077906 (iNaturalist)
Occurrence Remarks: I had placed the samples in a petri dish to dry them down and didn't think there would be enough moisture left to fire off the spore balls, but in the image of the petri dish you can see 3 spore balls stuck to the side of the petri dish. There were very distinct crystals in the spore ball
