until I saw the last added pictures, those made it much easier for me to guess :-)

After looking at photos 75252, 75249 and 75250, I have withdrawn my identification of Gymnomyces in favor of Irene’s identification of Macowanites. The above photos clearly show a central stipe, which is not present in Gymnomyces. Thus the locules are actually distorted gills of the Russula-relative Macowanites. My apologies to those who thought I knew what I was talking about, and congratulations to Irene Anderson for her astute observation.
