Yeah, they did smell spermatic which was surprising.

That does make M. snyderi more likely – however I think it’s likely that there are other more slender species that also fruit away from burns. Odor is informative in this group, as M. snyderi smells like fresh lawn clippings and also spermatic while many of the similar species have more mold odor.

This was not a burn area, just conifer forest at around 3000ft.

Were these found in a burn?

And if so, how long ago did the area burn?

They look like they might be a bit slender for M. snyderi.
