Hypholoma fasciculare or Hypholoma capnoides?

Any advice on how to tell the difference. I have read that H. fasciculare is very bitter if you nibble on a raw piece and give it time, while H. capnoides remains mild. Also in winter H. fasciculare is not so common, while H. capnoides is just coming on now.
