Question about taste, shape of young caps, habitat
By: L. C. Torrey (liammyster)

In your experience, have you found this species to be acrid tasting, mild, slowly/slightly acrid, or some combination thereof?

Have you found that the small caps are most nearly perfectly round?

Have you found these growing under spruce trees as well?

I am attempting to identify some very similar specimens, answers to these questions will be very useful for that purpose. Thanks!
