Observation 470552: Clitocybe robusta Peck

When: 2021-09-26

Collection location: Midland, Michigan, USA [Click for map]

Who: Eric (eozkan)

Specimen available

Collected this white mushroom from partial fairy ring (see photo) in a deciduous woodlot. Smell is mildly noxious, a little hint of organic solvent…not farinaceous. Negative KOH on surface. Spore print appears white on black background rather than pale yellow but even a 24 hour deposit was not very dense. Will attempt a longer spore print deposit as C. robusta is supposed to have a pale yellow spore print. Any ideas on further identification would be appreciated.
