This yellow-gold Xerula seems to be fairly common in the SE but doesn’t seem to have a good name(see MO8065).
Cap only 2.6 cm across and I wasn’t able to cleaning extract the complete rooting stem.
Spore print was white and spores were not amyloid.
Spores ~ 13.1-17.0(18.0) X 9.9-11.3 microns, ellipsoid and smooth.
Q(avg) = 1.51

Is it not definitely O. incognita?

I’ve been hoping it’s as simple as:

Yellow viscid USA Xeruloid:

Spores up to 12u: Hymenopellis sinapicolor
Spores 12u or longer: Oudemansiella incognita
