What was the odor here?

Did you get the odor of almonds here? This one has a strong odor of almonds, like you can get it from an arm’s reach away. It isn’t shy.

I just ask because I saw up the coast that it is a very good year for R. badialba. Lots were seen at Pt. Reyes and at Salt Point. This one is also with a brown cap, and the off-white serrate gills, with the red-brown spots on the gills and stipe.

Although on that one I didn’t see the darker disc that this one has. But it is something to keep in mind.
