H. sacchariolens is distinguished by its strong sweet or fruity odor. H. albidum is one of several species with a white or whitish cap and little or no odor. H. sarcophyllum is an unusual but distictive mushroom with a chalk-white cap that may become reddish-gray or browish-tinged in age, deep flesh-colored gills, and reddish-brown spores.”
