No specimen available

-This specimen was associated with the soil, and it was found growing in solitary.
-When I smelled it, I detected a very faint scent, but the smell wasn’t familiar to me.
-The diameter of the medium brown pileus was about 3.5 cm.
-The surface felt dry, but smooth; in some regions, it looked somewhat shiny.
-The pileal shape was planar, and the margin looked rimos.
-The flesh was light brown. When the cap was damaged, I observed a clear ooze coming out from where the stipe met the cap; I assumed that it was excess water that was retained in the tissue.
-The light tan stipe is centrally located; it was measured to be about 4.5 cm in length and 0.5 cm in width.
-When the stipe was halved, it was hollow and compressed.
-The base was inserted.
-The surface of the stipe felt dry, but it looked somewhat shiny and fibrillose.
-The light tan gills were adnate and even with two lamellae tiers. The tiers were arranged in a regular pattern.
-The spore print was cream white. The spores were smooth and not completely circular. They were somewhat oval shaped under 40x magnification.
