Who: Garrett Taylor (cappy)

No specimen available

I took a piece home but was waiting on the spores and none dropped so I’m not sure I will have a specimen or not, I could go back. Mixed woods, lots of Hemlock, Oak, and Beech, this was growing from a thick mat of mycelium under a log which also had a good amount of (I assume) the same mycelium. It had a nice smell and the taste was pleasant (I just had roasted garlic bread so not so discerning). I will say the smell was not exactly anise and definitely not almond. I thought the cap color was somewhat yellowish the first day I looked at it, but there wasn’t any staining. Today it was more plain white. The big cap was nearly 4" in diameter.
