Yes I smelled it, but I have a really difficult time describing mushroom smells. The smell was mild and pleasant, but more like some kind of spice or solvent than bread dough.

didja smell it, Dan?

clitopilus prunulus has a very distinctive smell, pleasantly farinaceous or like bread dough.

I was expecting to see pores when I flipped this one over.
