That’s why this find here is dried up and shrivelled. I found them within the walls of an old ruined devastated castle in mixed coniferous wood on fir as fir is the most preferred host for that species in Europe. Didn’t expect to stumble upon them at this time of the year too … but this year was unusually cold. Unfortunately now it is unusually HOT for end of April and I am afraid mushroom season is over again before it starts due to dryness.
but they don’t always smell when I find them either. When they do, it reminds of rotten cabbage, somewhat like Thelephora palmata.
Maybe there are people who do not consider it bad. It is a mixture of tar and something undefineable and for me it almost causes nausea to even smell very shortly. But when the fruitbodies are dry and old like the ones shown here then they get smelly after a while during transport and not immediately.
Could be there are different species on different continents?
