I’ve been visiting mycoquebec lately. Lots of really good photos and detailed descriptions.

Looks to me like the silky sheen on the cap is an isabellinum character.

I’ll try to remember to check the odor with these types.

From what I’ve read E. strictius

is definitely brown overall and has an farinaceous odor while var. isabellinum has more yellow and buff tones and no odor.

brownish tones on the cap.

I’m wondering how one recognizes the color(s) that determine var. isabellinum.
