Found growing solitary in mixed woods Oaks/Beech/Hickory/ with Eastern Hemlock here and there. This was between a white Oak and a Beech tree Almost smack in the middle between the two. This area had what appeared to be green briers and blue berry growing in the vicinity. No smell detected or taste mild.

citrinas around here this fall. Oak woods, but also beech/birch/hemlock. I found a few fresh ones even after there had been some heavy frost and temps just below 30F.

No potato odor mild. also a lot of filament like material on cap. We have the A citrina around here very common but its the Var.lavendula. We have had some pretty cold nights temp hovering around 36 degrees Fahrenheit turning a lot of them violet.

Looks like citrina

but the lack of odor makes me wonder. Is the stalk base a bulb with a gutterlike upper margin?
