Observation 32086: Inocybe calamistrata (Fr.) Gillet

Dimitar took Noah and I to this spot, and said this is only the second time he has seen these fruiting in the spot, despite many trips to the location. I am not surprised, the conditions have been unusually favourable for all fungi. Which brings me to my next observation- size. Dimitar called these I. calamistrata, and I think these are from the same patch posted on his website . But I am pretty sure that the ones we found yesterday are FAR larger than I. calamistrata is supposed to be… On the other hand, Noah has been finding L. rubidus larger than my hand, and a lot of the mushrooms I have seen lately have been WAY larger than they “should” be, so I could be convinced that these are just gigantic because of all the rain we have had.

Another thing.. The odour is not fishy, unpleasant, nor very strong. Maybe they are just not old enough, I am not sure. I have not found this species before, but Dimi says that when he found them there years ago, the odour was very fishy.

I am drying these, and NOW I am noticing an unpleasant fishy odour. Kind of gross.
