Observation 196093: Cuphophyllus lawrencei (Hesler & A.H. Sm.) comb. prov.
When: 2015-01-11
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I don’t know with this species and if someone could confirm the id, I would appreciate it.

I can read “odor of cedar” in the description, but what I perceive is not a lot similar to the familiar odor of cedar plank. It’s probably personal, but I find the odor and especially taste strong and disagreeable.

I understand the little russocoriaceus/lawrencei story now: no problem to id this mushroom, with a slight possibility that the two (European and American) species are the same. I’m still wondering about that odor “of cedar”.

It’s white

Thanks, Alan. This mushroom is white. I just added another picture, taken at the same locality on December 6. It’s the same species (same odor/taste etc).

If it doesn’t smell like cedar

it may be some other species. The colors are a bit dark for Cuphophyllus russocoriaceus.
