The odor of C. robusta may be considered by some as unpleasant. Personally, I’m not real fond of the odor, but it’s not terrible… maybe a bit like fruit that’s just a bit too ripe. Difficult to describe, but usually fairly prominent. Individuals seem to detect odors differently, and with different intensities.
I think the key to C. robusta is that the spore print is yellow. Make sure to take the print (partially) on a white medium, as the yellow is kinda subtle and contrasts well with a white backdrop. There are other large white Clitocybe species. Leucopaxillus species are also similar. Clitocybe irina (=Lepista irina) is similar but with a pleasant aroma; the spore print is subtly pinkish. Cliticybe subconnexa has a pink spore print, usually grows in clusters.
I found several mushrooms that look very much like these, but C. robusta is supposed to smell bad. The ones I found have a very faint smell and it’s not bad.
