the smell is not menthol like in R. albonigra, neither it has “odor indistinct” as in R. densifolia.

Taste would be very important

but it has to be either R. anthracina or R. densifolia, maybe R. albonigra.
But why bother? For a serious ID you need fresh well documented fruitbodies.

Cap – glabrous (covered with sand and dust)
Taste – …
Smell – acrid
Very slightly reddening
Very quicky darkening, even being not much fresher.

Is the cap surface glossy and shiny?

Was the taste acrid or mild?
What about the smell?
Did it blacken without previous reddening?
Had the gills a reddish tinge or not?

I think with only one old specimen this question is not answerable.

Russula anthracina?
