Sigh, seems I’ve got another wrong. I detect no odor, and since Arora and rogersmushrooms.com claim A. bitorquis can stain faintly pink or reddish, I went with that. However, the community consensus seems to go with “pink means A. bernardii”. So be it. Too bad I don’t have a dehydrator to keep these for later.
