It had a mild, fungal taste. Consistency congruent with a Craterellus, though the rarity of chanterelles in the Amazon made us doubt this idea.

Yes, Dacryopinax spathularia is the obvious choice, if it wasn’t for the ridges, something that is not reported to my knowledge for D.spatularia and which made me suspect Craterellus.
