Host is Eastern red oak, a fairly common introduced species in my area, and being propogated b y an introduced squirrel which also is not native. We are getting a lot of new fungal species as well, coming in with nursery stock

What is this one, its a new one on me, smells like lilac? What trees does it grow with did you say?

I’m pretty sure it isn’t Collybia anymore, I wonder if this one went to Gymnopus or Rhodocollyibia…
