The smell-

was like sweet Teriyaki beef jerky Martin… However, we didn’t really analyze the smell until we had returned home and removed it from the bag.

Damon B’s post of this species from New York looks identical- with the reddish pink caps on each layer. Must be the appearance with young, dense fruit bodies.

Most images I’ve ever seen of this species are very old- black and less distinct.

Thanks again for all the help with MidWest fungi Walt :) Most are still new to my wife and I- and we only get to experience these deciduous forest fungi once a year in the summer. You are greatly appreciated!

Wow Drew!

Do you think this could be Globifomes graveolens? Macrofungi associated with Oaks states that some specimens have a sweet odor when cut (p. 279)
