We can verify at this point that the specimen produces ballistospores, which is a spore that is discharged into the air once the fungus has come into maturity. This specimen appears to be just short of maturing and discharging its first ballistosposes.
Using a 5X magnification lamp and micro-tweezers NFI has extracted a few spore samples. These spores which are practically invisible to the naked eye are structurally very solid and have evolved to float on the lightest puff of wind.
