A Champion des Champignons said, you can?t, the spores and other microscopic features look way to similar within a species to be able to make a differentiation into strains this way.

So how do any of us know that the print we buy or trade for is anything more than what the other person wants it to be? How can we have so many strains but no way to tell one from another? What about the spores, i found this web site (Link) it say that you can messure them. Im just puzzled as to why we have so many strains yet no way to tell one from another. Thanks for you time.

>So how do any of us know that the print we buy or trade for is anything more
>than what the other person wants it to be?
Someone goes to a pasture, find a mushroom, sees a water tower near where he found it, and names the strain "P. cubensis Tower".
He goes home, takes a spore print, grows some mushrooms with that spore print, and takes spore prints from those mushrooms. Those are now "P. cubensis Tower" spore prints.

>How can we have so many strains but no way to tell one from another?
From keeping the records where which print originates from.
And partially the mycelium and mushrooms(the fruits) have a distinct look depending on the strain.(but also depending on the environmental conditions and the substrate, so the macroscopic characteristics aren?t very reliable)

>What about the spores, i found this web site (Link) it say that you can measure them.
This is about different SPECIES. We are talking here about strains of a single species, namely P. cubensis.

>Im just puzzled as to why we have so many strains yet no way to tell one from another.
Well, as I said above, record keeping is the key.

>Thanks for you time.
You're welcome.
