From M. oreades in the past (even when cooked), but I did not sniff these particular ones. They were also right next to a major UW road so were not good for picking.

Do you get any odor from this species?

It is supposed to smell almondy… I have a hard time detecting it on collections from Santa Cruz…

The Center for Urban Horticulture is an old favorite hunting ground. I sure miss Seattle when I see your observations! I always said it was a gian mushroom city with buildings in the way.
Nice to see your posts.

I do much of my hunting….

In suburban/urban areas for a few reasons:

1) It is where I started learning about fungi.
2) I do not drive!
3) It intrigues me to study the fungi you can find in your own neighborhood.

I found this and brought this in on my way to the PSMS ID clinic.

Love the Location
