Growing next to possible Hebeloma crustuliniforme and scent.

This observation which I believe to be Hebeloma crustuliniforme was found right next to each other (This patch of woodchips had at least 7 species), the spore prints are the same shade, but the smell differs. This which smells unpleasant and farinaceous, which may be a result of the maggots they came with. While the H. crustuliniforme smells like a radish. The location is close by so I’ll update the scent with fresh specimens later today and attempt to dry them properly this time if anyone is interested in microscopy work.
