Notes: Significant – large, white, shallow gills, multiple forking of gills, gills close, odd smell.

Habitat: under Mature Oak and Sweet Gum in sandy soil near pond.

Conditions: the last 3 + weeks have been very hot and dry with temperatures near 100 F. The mushrooms, even the smaller ones, showed no latex when broken. They were very dry. I will try to get them again in less dry conditions.

Smell: Had a strange chemical smell similar to cloves or nutmeg but not pleasant – but not significantly unpleasant. The smell was strong enough to quickly fill my auto. I held my tongue to the flesh for about 5 – 10 sec and tasted nothing. There was no latex.

Cap: Diameter, largest 7-10 cm. Some brownish stained spots, depressed, edge rolled under in younger caps, flesh white, flesh thick (1 cm) continuous with stalk,

Gills: Ivory colored, Crowded, Breadth is very narrow (1-2 mm), multiply forked, some small reddish brown stain spots.
