I’ll be honest with you that I do not even know the odor of figs. Never ate a fig, but I would know the odor of dates. If I find this species again I’ll try to remember that. This species took me awhile to be satisfied with the name I had given it.

don’t mention the odor which can often be quite distinct.

Wish I could recall. This was seen back about 1 1/2 years ago. Forgot I even had this in my photo records. Winter is a good time to go back through old things. I’ll check to see if I still have the dried specimen, but think it would be unlikely that it would have any odor left.

Sometimes Climacodon pulcherrimus smells very much like figs.
