The spore length

works well with Gautieria, but the width is smaller than anything I have reference to. May be a little immature? The lack of a strong odor suggests immaturity as well. Chance of a species unknown to me as well.

It had a slight unpleasant odor.

The spores are 10 – 12 × 5 – 6 microns, spindle shaped, longitudinally striate, with an acute apex and the other end truncate.

river delta columella (white in the gleba) very descriptive.

If found during a warm day, this could have a very strong odor. Did you notice any?
