It has a pungent smell .

Not mouldy like old dust? And the base of the stem, was it white with strigils?

How did it smell? Could be Clitocybe metachroa.

Lactarius doesn’t grow on wood. Although I have seen some on a stump or a log, but those were very decomposed, and covered in think moss, they were almost more soil that wood.

These look more like Clitocybe, not sure which. Sometimes the odor of Clitocybe can help in the id.
