Certainly not what we call T. saponaceum in California.

They do smell like soap.

Pretty common in the area, we have a pile of them at the fungus fair every year.

Looks like the brown flush on some of the stipes…

developed as per age and/or handling. Neither MushroomExpert nor C du Q mentions this for T. saponaceum. There are some Trichs that are known to do this.

I wonder if there’s a Las Vegas line on “saponaceum” representing a group?

I assume they smelled like soap.
