Recognized by sight: Widely spaced, thick gills, brittle when handled. Small stature could indicate something near Macowanites, but I see no gills growing together nor a more bell-like cap. Likely Russulales, and quite possibly Russula.

It was brittle. Very brittle. It came out of the ground with really no effort and just touching it would break something off. Very sandy soil it was found in. I didn’t check to see if it bled but I don’t think it did.

The gills look free.

There are very few lamellulae. That’s another thing that can indicate Russulales. Was it brittle? Did it bleed?

Stature looks like Clitocybe …

but gills look too thick, more like Russula.
