Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under live oak.

Cap viscid, taste mild, not bitter. Taste was mostly unpleasant, and slightly like cucumber, but certainly not bitter.

Adding micro details.

The micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. Here you can see the cheilocystidia on a non-fertile edge.

So, with the existence of cheilocystidia this confirms the id of T. dryophilum. And this species is not bitter, but unpleasant and slightly like cucumber.
