Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

These were growing on the grassy edge of a rocky beach.
The caps were up to 4.2 cm across.
They had an odor of anise.
The gills were brownish gray.
The spore print was white and the spores were ~ 5.2-6.6 X 3.0-4.0 microns, smooth, and ellipsoid to oblong.
With a fairly unique set of characteristics, they match the description rather well… considering the problems this genus usually presents.
