I didn’t get any odor on these

but as I’m travelling I didn’t hold on to them as long as I usually do—sometimes I pick up an odor when I open the wax paper bag the next day.


Color in photos…

seems a bit washed out. But when I saw the thumbnail, first thing that came to my mind was “hibbarade” (=mammosus)… maybe because I had seen so many of these today.

Any odor detected? Some of the ones I examined today had the coconut odor and others did not.
