Observation 286284: Xerocomellus Šutara

Notes:
A solitary specimen fruiting from leaf-litter-covered soil between a large fallen log and a small branch. When I dug it out and saw the pinched stipe I assumed it was caused by the narrow space through which it grew. However, when I later bisected this specimen I encountered nothing I have ever seen before … some sort of anomaly?? Because of the cap color, depth of the pore tubes, extensive bluing, and olive-brown spore print I am guessing it may be some sort of deformed Xerocomellus. KOH was pale yellow on cap initially and darkened to orangey-yellow within several minutes.
