Observation 118649: Hebeloma crustuliniforme (Bull.) Quél.

Notes:
Recognized by spermatic odor, brown gills and off-white cap. These are huge for H.c. in my experience. One was nearly a foot in diameter. All were found on the outskirts of the PCC campus, along SE 80th, about a 2 blocks north from the new administrative offices.

But ground covered with deciduous leaves. I think there are birch, cottonwood, and perhaps some redbud present. Includes the largest Hebeloma crustuliniforme I have seen. According to Arora, it would have to be Hebeloma sinapizans, which has a scaly stalk, just because of the size of the cap. Need to do more research.

This also has a noticeably bulbous base of the stipe, not noted in Arora for either species. Yet I have been finding what otherwise fits Hebeloma crustuliniforme with bulbous base several times this year.
