Maybe not a synonym

Clitocybe robusta is probably a good species. Clitocybe nebularis var. alba is just considered Clitocybe nebularis now. Both are described as having a foul odor and I concur that C. robusta smells like skunk cabbage to me. C. nebularis is common in Western North America. I have never recognized it in Eastern North America where C. robusta is common in some areas. C. nebularis var alba was put into synonymy with C. robusta at one time but unless there is DNA evidence to the contrary I would go with C. robusta for your Ontario mushroom. It is interesting that neither species has been recorded at a NEMF foray which is large and has been held for many years in N.E. North America.
