Well I didn’t smell it either. I was pretty convinced it was C. prunulus and didn’t feel the need to smell another one. I do usually smell mushrooms if I am uncertain of the ID.

everybody BUT Allen smelled it, apparently.

It was definitely Clitopilus prunulus.

This specimen was passed around at the BAMS foray, I assumed it was ID’d correctly but maybe not. I did not smell it.

The pileus is segmented in a way that is very common with C. prunulus, as also depicted on the MykoWeb page for the species.
I also handled the mushroom and it was more brittle than most Clitocybe I find.

What did it smell like?

This one looks more like a Clitocybe, the gills are too well spaced and light grey, the gills would be more light pink-brown for Clitopilus.

What was the odor here?
