Long spines

I wonder if the long spines is a typical character for this species. It looks like something in the imbricatus group, but I have never seen such spines on the ones I know. The smell could be a coincidence, of course.

There’s a new species described from hardwoods (Fagaceae), Sarcodon quercinofibulatus, but I have only seen a very brief description..
At least it’s known from both Mexico and the mediterranean area, so I beleive that several other “imbricatus” from hardwoods are this species.

Maybe

It’s hard to tell what is scoped because there are directories on my computer with thousands of micrographs that I made in Mexico. It’s hard to tell what is saved because I have 500 bags of dried mushrooms in Mexico City.

I think this one was dried because I remember that it smells like the bugs that were on it.

scoped? saved?
