Aside from the odor…

I’m wondering what else points toward Hebeloma. From the photos, my first impression was Hygrophorus. H. monticola is a species reported to have forked sub-poroid gills. The collection location does not agree with the reported range of this species, one reason why I hesitate to propose it.
