Mykoweb’s description mentions C. deceptiva to occur in CA. It also mentions C. fragrans which it describes to have a sweet smell, but not of anise.
In my matchmaker software, it lists both deceptiva and fragans to have an anise smell and differentiates the two by cap color and size. Mykoweb doesn’t offer a description for fragrans but it’s picture shows a much more depressed center and overall larger, browner looking body.
I see from looking here on MO and reading the observation 6615, that fragrans is the better choice for my observation based on the size and the white coloring. Observation 6615 also says it has a strong smell of anise.
