Is saying that is unavailable for me… :(

Not many people complain about possibly misidentified Clitocybe here because not even the person who made the CA Clitocybe key can use the key…

You’re looking at a lot of varying degrees of whitish and brown mushrooms with subjective hard to qualify smells which you really need to learn from someone else that knows in person.

Gehard said that about a weird mushroom without any specific feature and said it very well. There are 79 observations here with C. fragrans name.

Well

M. Wood doesn’t really describe it, just points to a difference between C. fragrans and C. deceptiva, saying that C. fragrans is more white and smells sweet. However the description on Flora Agaricina Neerlandica – 3 pg 59 matches exactly this specimen.

I can only repeat what Gerhard told you about ID hell. :)

I think the CA C. fragrans shown at mykoweb might not be the same as the European one.

Thanks Byrain

At least you think that it could be C. fragrans, but it would be of even better value if anyone could post other possibilities. I was recognizing the smell, and soon I remembered. Almost sites refer to a aniseed smell, but Michael Wood refers to a strong sweet odor, and I believe he is right, at least for the C. fragrans I remember.
