Did not mean to imply Russula.

Or maybe I did, as the Arcangeliellas are related, along with Macowanites.

These usually have almost barely a stipe (which spreads into a columella in the gleba), gills with do not allow dispersal of spores into the air, and are typically spread by slugs, snails, voles or some other vector.

They are quite rare. It would be an important extension of known fruitings to find them in your area. They typically fruit under moss or leaf litter. Currently known only from Oregon and Washington, and are important indicator species associated with the Northwest Forest Plan.

spore print.
It is not Russula.

Only Entoloma and Hygrocybe around

It was a single spaciment.
I’m sorry that I did not made ​​a better shot of gills

Did you try for a spore print, Eva?

If no spore print, quite possibly a sequestrate epigeous fungus. Does the stipe look Russula-like?
