How wide and how tall was this specimen? Gill striations at edge of cap suggest Russula or Amanita. If less than 4 inches tall or wide, probably Russula or Macowanites. The gill photo seems to show a lot of gills growing together, a feature suggesting either transitional Russula or Macowanites. Was there an odor?
