Notes: Here you could read a translated piece from our German paper (2010) about the variable smell of Ph. christinae:
“Conspicuous and equally confusing were the different smells:I wrapped the first collection of Ph. christinae (28 June 2007) in aluminum foil and deposited them in the refrigerator overnight. In the evening of the next day I showed the fruitbodies the members of our local mushroom club. When I unpacked them a very pronounced odor of marzipan complied the room. The intensity was so high that the smell would surely have noticed by me at the finding place – but this was not the case.
A week later, on the 6th July, I visited the locality again. But all of the collected fruitbodies had a radish-like smell. The smell remained unchanged at the following day after storage in the refrigerator. Ludwig (2001) indicates in his compendium of mushrooms “flour-like” as a third possible odor note. As early as 1985 Laber refers to the different smells of Ph. christinae. Her expression “smell chameleon” characterizes the species appropriate."
