This specimen features the same multiple clamp connections in the pileus context as this observation (http://mushroomobserver.org/133950?q=1Hn7f) that I believe was too early in it’s development to form spines. In both specimens (133950 and this one), the hyphal system was monomitic.

I’m not entirely sure that I know what figs smell like, however the odor, while mild, was distinctive. Not sure how to describe it, maybe a little bit yeasty? But it smelled exactly like this observation: http://mushroomobserver.org/133950?q=1HchQ
Also, it is interesting to point out that when I tested the for a reaction with KOH, the cap surface turned very pink, however there was no reaction on the spines or context and I think this is why I did not get a positive KOH reaction from obs 133950.

Did you note the odor?

This one smelled distinctly of figs.
