Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Although this does look quite like C micaceus I cannot see any of the micaceus remnants. It is possible that it is C silvaticus. A microscope would be needed>
What should I look for to tell? I'm afraid my books do not provide that detail.

C silvaticus has much larger spores and they are covered with verrucose warts.
Ok so I need a x400 microscope, do I ?
I think that would be enough in this case but 100x oil is really needed for looking and measuring the "bits" accurately.
