Haha, well there you have it.

It is often a good idea to get multiple opinions when it comes to scent, as differing odours are often reported.

Just talked to my wife about it and she said it smelled bad. And I have a bad sense of smell for a lot of mushrooms.

There was not a distinctive odor.

C. nebularis sounds like a good name for this collection

L. gentianeus wouldn’t be far off on color and stature, but as pointed
out already, they always pull a bit of mycelial strands below. This
one looks more like a young C. nebularis. And yes, the odor, any
sewage pipes burst around there?

Yeah, the mycelium and growth from hardwood litter suggests Clitocybe.
Any scent??

Might be Clitocybe – doesn’t look like it has a very dense mycelial mat.
