So, I’ve got these growing under a potted lemon tree, and have searched the net for reassurance that they’re edible, as they smell delicious. The closest I’ve found is below: “I guess they’re edible, too”. Can anyone give me more rousing assurance?

Who knew that there was a beautiful AND easily identifiable Melanoleuca sp?

Darvins got it. Alan, you might recall I brought some M. verrucipes to an MSSF meet about this time last year, and were deposited in Dennis Desjardins herbarium after positive identification. I guess they’re edible too. There are some really nice photos around the internet. I’ll post mine from last year, for the record.
