on finding this I would had brought it in for identification too! Since I had no idea what it was. Heck, I didn’t even bring it home!

I was just making a random comment about how people often mistake the two. I had heard it happened often, but I have seen it with my own eyes a few times recently with people bringing Matsutake in for ID.

I assume you meant A. smithiana as opposed to A. magnivelare?

You aren’t suggesting

this is A. smithiana, are you?

Actually, I can easily understand the confusion between the two: to my nose, A. smithiana does have aromas of cinnamomeum. But pyramidal warts on the cap are a good indication of something NOT A. magnivelare!

It is still scary….

How I have seen people bring A. smithiana into the PSMS ID clinic thinking they were Matsutake….

At least they were smart enough to bring it in!
