I don’t know how much of it that’s valid today, but I found an american Thelephora monograph including over 20 species, among them T. anthocephala, looking like palmata but without the disgusting smell..

with a key on page 200.

no smell, and I had my face right in it.

Ryane Snow also posted these on MO…I am checking to see if he got any smell off of them. You are right, palmata is a better visual fit.
