I don’t eat anything I don’t have much experience with, so no, not yet. I did dessicate some of them and saved them along with a prepared microscope slide of the spores for future reference. However, these mushrooms smelled good, so I am not so sure they are nebularis, which supposedly smell bad. There are so many clitocybe species in California! It can be daunting to identify them.

Did you eat it?

I know a guy from the PSMS who thinks they are great!
