the smell of rotting flesh is just that…decaying amanita protein. altho I scoffed at first, some of the younger specimens have either no smell or a spicy smell somewhat similar to the matsutake, which could be a deadly mistake if a forager went by smell alone. Kinda makes you understand how folks have mistaken the two mushrooms, esp. when they are young and undeveloped.
Two specimens were growing together, and I decided to leave one growing; in doing so, I had to break the base of this specimen. But it was definitely rooting deeply.
guess that you left that long rooting base behind when you dug it up? any odor?
