Collection location: Maria Vinagre, Algarve, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: pouihi (pouihi)

No specimen available

Growing on soil with wood chips, near strawberry trees.
Cap whitish/cream with very distinctive scales. Flat and with about 8 cm in diameter; The gills appear cream to light brown although the specimen I found look a bit old and dried out and this could be spore deposit. Free and crowded; Probably about 1 cm in diameter, and 8 (or so) cm high. Whitish and smooth, a bit club shaped. The stem had a piece of veil remnant that appeared like a ring but was left behind as soon as I picked it up;
I didn’t get any spores out of this specimen, it was already too dried out, I thought maybe it could have light brown spores due to the color acquired by the gills.
I think it actually had a spermatic smell.
