No specimen available

At first I thought maybe N/F spraguei. But the spores are too small for this species.

Spore lengths 3-4.5.

Postia guttulata looks very reasonable for this observation. Internet photos of this species show several examples with the large drops of clear liquid on the fruit bodies. My spore photo is not very good, but spores aligned lengthwise appear to have lengths up to about 4.5 microns.
