“The odor is very easily missed in collections of only a few fruiting bodies, but when several baskets full are brought into a room, the odor becomes very noticeable.”

Thanks for the tip and reference on the hyphae.

I don’t remember the odor (or anyone commenting on it at the site). But I’m often less sensitive to odors than other folks.

I do remember Judy saying that years ago, she regularly found this species at this location.

did it have the peachy odor?

apparently you can even ID this from the MR and hyphae alone! Who knew?


Clitocybe downvote

I downvoted Clitocybe because of waxy gills, stature. Looking at this mushroom live on 4/24 (as opposed to being force to rely on my weak photo), this was obviously a waxy cap. Also note excellent on-site determiner.
