Used references: Arora, Mushrooms Demystified. Arora and I disagree on this. Arora says “The species epithet is something of a misnomer. for I have never found it to have an odor other than the usual slightly unpleasant smell that all ripening puffballs develop.” IME handling a single L. foetidum then handling Arora’s newly signed book left a distinctive foul odor, which is still present (slightly) 27 years later.
