It was raining too hard to take photos in the natural setting, so I took these photos outside my home the next day in diffuse 100% natural daylight from an overcast sky. Mushroom body is hardy, not decomposing noticeably at 50°F over 48 hours. Smell did not change — actually smells rather appetizing.

GILLS pallid white, adnate, some forked at stem. STEM white. SPORE PRINT cream to pale yellow. HABITAT open areas in woods.
