Collected more today. Very fresh ones have no discernible sweet smell and do have white remnants around margin. I am adding one image of young specimen now.

Fade quickly in my experience and your new image leaves me unsure as well. :)

I still have the specimens and get no sweet smell, although it has been 28 hrs since picking now.

more pictures of young non-faded specimens? Is the outer-veil on the cap surface rusty colored? This could be faded P. hymenocephala or maybe just P. candolleana. The versions of these species I find in CA in urban environments don’t differ microscopically in any obvious way, only macroscopically. P. candolleana with a pallid outer-veil and honey/brown colored cap when young and P. hymenocephala with a pallid to rusty outer veil and a cinnamon colored cap when young that quickly fades to colors similar to P. candolleana. I also get a maple syrup odor similar to candy caps from P. hymenocephala and not P. candolleana, but this is not mentioned in Smith’s Psathyrella book.
