The name Agaricus leptocaulis Kerrigan was published on 25 October 2016. The mushrooms Dan sent, from an earlier collection, belonged to this new species.

waiting for the name. In Mycological academic circles, publishing a new name in a recognized journal could take several years.

“new” species found last year

I’m pretty sure this is the same mushroom I found last year:

Yellow is evident on the little rhizomorphs extending from the base of the stem. The base of the stem is quite fragrant, rather like anise, but other parts of the mushroom are less fragrant.

I sent specimens to Rick Kerrigan last year. He gave me a provincial name, but asked that i not post it until the name was published. I just googled the name and came up with nothing, so maybe its not published yet.

What does it smell like?
