Both Christian and Alan fairly confident about californicus…

I’ll update my species concept to allow a strong smell. :)

Thank you!

I’d call these a decent candidate for A. californicus – small partial veil, base of stipe apparently straight/cylindrical not crooked/bulbous, along with slightly grayer cap (and of course the lack of yellow staining). It would be good to measure the spores.
