Observation 99918: Leucophleps spinospora Fogel

I dug this out of a hole in the ground while pillaging squirrel holes on the predominately pine/fir shores of Sand Pond, elevation about 5800 feet. When I smelled it after slicing it in half, it reminded me of old, stale cigarette butts, or as another individual put it, “some sort of…chemical smell”. This was the only specimen I found, and I don’t recall if it had a discharge of latex when cut. The spores where somewhat easy to recognize as well.
