I read “spore print white” for C. fragrans in MatchMaker.

The collection is available for further investigation. :)

doesn’t have pure white spores either: “pale cream to orange cream” according to Funga Nordica.. And it doesn’t look like the fragrans I know, so I guess it’s something else then. A case for further investigation :-)

Irene, thanks for the suggestion. These mushrooms do look somehow different from the C. fragrans I’ve seen. C. anisata does not seem to be known in this area, and its spore print is pale buff, according to Funga Nordica.

I wonder if it isn’t closer to C. anisata..?
