Maybe Hypomyces contributed to the smell

The highly Hypomycesized ones smelled awful.

Then R. occidentalis possible.

Odor of “fish market” a little surprising, at least to me. Mature R. occidentalis should have odors of banana. Only very “off” specimens approach fish market odor, and these are often saturated with water.

Rhizopogons are always mycorrhizal, Jacob.
