Failed to get a spore print yet again. What is it with me and spore prints down here?? Demystified suggested this ID, and I found a blog on the web (http://hongosdelhaya.blogspot.com/) that described it, including a mention of the radial furrows, onion odor, and “dye” at base (it was in Spanish, so don’t trust my translation!)
