This is the typical spermatic smell of Inocybe. Almost 90% I would say smell like this. I think it is not so significant what soil it is. They are microrrhizal.
There are some sindonia-lookalikes but with Inocybe in the mediterranean areas I am not very familiar.
I’m very bad for smelling… I always say that the smell reminds me something that I can’t recognize. Well, after reading at that time I cutted the cap a little bit and it seemed to smell of green corn but before cutting it doesn’t have significant smell.
By photos, I would say that it is more likely I. sindonia, but more yellow than it. By other side, the soil here is mostly acid, though I find some clay zones, so…I don’t know.
I have more photos, I will upload.
By sight alone this reminds me strongly of Inocybe hirtella or Inocybe sindonia. If you have taken it home in a closed box and you noticed a smell like bitter almonds by re-opening it it is hirtella. With no particular smell many other options, unfortunately.
A third species to confer could be I. hirtelloides. All of them have smooth spores. But this is just a hint. Inocybe is a very species-rich genus and simultaneously very difficult to ID to species level.
Thanks Andrew. It’s very difficult to identify a Inocybe specie by sight, without a microscope, it’s my conclusion by now. Looking at physical descriptions, the only one that match is Inocybe kauffmanii, but I’m not even sure of that. Does anyone have any clue?
