Until I turned one over, I thought this was Phyllotopsis nidulans. The latter does not always have the bad odor. In Arkansas last year at the NAMA Foray, collections were basically odorless. Bill Roody tells me that he has noticed the same lack of odor with Southern US collections.

Nice photo, Walt.

I’m guessing that the forked gills are a good character to separate this from Phyllotosis nidulans. Some of my collections IDed as P. nidulans have lacked the characteristically prominent odor.
