It smelled exactly like what Matsutake had been described to me to smell like. I have never smelled nor found Matsutake in the wild on any of my outings. That is funny that I was at all right.

Cool find Rory!!

Nice job!

Odd to see one at our low elevation (400-500 ft). It’s funny you thought of Matsutake due to the smell since Arora says the smell can be reminiscent of it!
