The habitat …

was a mixed forest of pine and quercus trees, oaks and others.
I chose H. latitabundus based on the cap colour and the unusual inflated stem.

latitabundus vs persoonii

The even cap colour indicates latitabundus, but how about the habitat?

I find latitabundus with spruce (and maybe pine), persoonii with oak.
H. latitabundus also has a pleasant sweetish smell, not persoonii.

but as I had read in Rogersmushrooms “ Stem 35–100 x 10–20mm, whitish above, grey-brown below, sometimes lemon-chrome at the base” and he say sometimes, I tought it could be that. But your guess is better I think, if we interpret differently the black line on cap edge on first picture.

Why not young Hygrophorus persoonii?

It is not Gomphidius, no yellow in stipe base.
