The odor of dried material for this obs and obs 250094 is bad. I’ve never smelled boiled urine, which is the smell described for this species, but I can imagine it would be close to what these smell like. Other characters fit too: the tendency of the cap to crack in hot weather, the depressed reddish pore surface that blues then browns, the smooth/misc. stem that is yellow at the apex, darker below and red at the base of the stem.
