Yes, Arcangeliella.

Similar to Arcangeliella crassa Singer & Smith, and Arcangeliella lactarioides Zeller, in Handbook to Strategy 1 Fungal Species in the Northwest Forest Plan, by Castellano, Smith, O’Dell, Cazares and Nugent.

Could also be something new.

Arcangeliella lactarioides has a stipe and vestigial hymenium. The stipe as displayed above has almost no spore-bearing surfaces: it is mostly stipe and cap. Your collections appears to be opposite of this. Would need to see photos of spores. An important collection, Christian. Provide microscopy if you can. Matt Trappe or Michael A. Castellano would be your best source for sending the collection to.
