Observation 5980: Clitocybe nebularis (Batsch) P. Kumm.
When: 2008-01-08
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Fruiting with bay, live oak. One cluster present. The picked specimen has a pileus 6.3cm across, stipe 2.2cm and total height of 10.5cm.
Spores are a pale warm tan but being enclosed in plastic at room temperature produced a bad odor earlier today. Only now it doesn’t smell bad at all!? And it really looks more like the pictures of C. nebularis I found online.

Did you also consider Clitocybe nebularis? I forget, what would be a good way to tell the difference? There is a different odor I believe, and the taste…
