As the name suggests,

upon drying the odor is like vinegar, faint but distinct in opposite to risigallina which smells like roses. Both are not rare. Maybe overlooked or not watched properly.
Small size (about 2 to 3 cm), stem extremely soft and brittle and chambered, taste absolutely mild. Growing with oak at a thermophilous sun-exposed slope. The only unusual thing about is that this location is in almost 1000 m a.s.l. but there are other thermophilous fungi and trees there (Carinthia is getting dried up and heated up like many other parts of Austria too) like Boletus reticulatus and Cantharellus pallens (see observations). The only rare species in the Chamaeleontinae complex is ochracea. Not sure about taxonomy on this one.
