ostreatus can have that intense sweet anise odor you speak of. I will look for the tree type, but doubt we have much of that bigtooth aspen in our area. They are typical on poplar however.

I’m getting less sure about my Pleurotus IDs every year. One thing I notice is most of them I find on bigtooth aspen have a distinct anise odor. I don’t know if that means anything. It could be P. pulmonarius.

This obs. http://mushroomobserver.org/93462?q=JKxc was very strong smelling and too tough to eat.
