This mushroom was found in association with tanoak and douglas fir at about 1200’ elev. It shows somw insect damage although no insects were observed. It is cream colored. The gills are detaching from the cap. It has a very mild fungal odor and is tastless but acrid. The stipe is hollow and pithy inside. It doesn’t seem to stain when bruised. The best I can tell with my magnifying glass the spores are white.
The stem is brittle, but the cap is not.
