Definitely L. molle.
Sterigmal remnants in the mount w KOH. Turns slight green in KOH, (spores & capill.)
Echinulate spores. abundant pores in fragmented eucapill.
Enlarged rhizomorph – larger than normal.
Very beautiful specimen!
Thank you Ron!

they seem too thick walled to be molle. perlatum has thick walled cells as d o a couple other lycoperdon.
