easy to determine

To determine Gloeophyllum odoratum is easy once one smells it. The smell is unmistakable (and pleasant). G. odoratum is very common here around where I live and I`ve never found one without its characteristic and strong smell.They smell young or old or completely dry. The shape of the sporocarp can be very diverse and many times unspecific, but I`ve never seen a variant with a stipe. Also the color of the orange part tends more to yellow than to red.

Could be a hypogeous species.

but without seeing the center, can’t go further. Appears to have a central columella or stipe, but does not show either gills or tubes, which may be concealed. Thus thus fungus is likely one of the astrogastrous fungi.
