I don’t understand

I don’t understand what you want to say. I meant to say that H.suaveolens is usually sporting very light-colored to almost white cap (as far as I know), and that the mushrooms I usually encounter are always much darker, as in the photo.

and if the white on the cap is an hypomyces?

I’ve seen very many of these guys – they never sport white or whitish cap that H.suaveolens is supposed to have. It’s always brown, and it bruises blue or just have bluish spots on it.

I was thinking of Hydnellum suaveolens, best recognized by its aniseed-like smell, but also the flesh with blue and white zones.
