Yes, C. texensis is a possibility

for this collection.
The spores on these do seem a little longer, which apparently is one of the distinctions between the two species. However, there is a lot of overlap and my measurements were somewhat perfunctory.
Hopefully, these will be sequenced and maybe help clarify the situation.
