Or you can skip the agar step and hope your print is clean. It just may be clean if you take a nice print from a healthy specimen. You can do this in the field without even needing to touch it by using a Spore Collar. This is a clean piece of tinfoil with a slit in it so it can be placed around the stem under the cap of a living mushroom. Here it will catch the falling spores. Cover the mushroom with a cup or something to protect it from wind, rain, etc overnight and good luck!
