I'm new to mushrooms but...

Can you take a spore print from a dried mushroom?

no
chances are if its dried its probably already dropped its spores. If it was Young enough when it was picked and the Vail was not broken then the spores might be preserved inside. I've heard stories of people starting cultures just from the dust left in the bag. I've never tried it myself.

It is not possible to get a "print" per se, but it is possible to germinate spores that are still clinging to get gills of dried mushrooms. This is not simple or easy to do, though, Workman's remarkable efforts, described over in Advanced Mycology, not withstanding.

If you had a clean mature dried mushroom, with the veil INTACT, and were expert in sterile procedures & proficient with agar/petri plates, or liquid culture. Odds are, you could extract a piece of spore laden gill material & insert it into a nutriant medium that would germinate.

Agar, you're the  :poop: :craven:

How did you learn all this??  Take classes?? Read read read??  I learn something almost every time I read your posts!  By the way, thanks for the picture you put together about how to assemble wet grain jars w/ tyvek lids.  It's worked out VERY well for me.
