fewteeth: you need to fetch another one and check the aroma. Very few of C. odora on MO are shown with a blue stipe. Arora pointed out in MDM that there may be a difference between the eastern and western versions of this critter. The most obvious is that the eastern version has white gills, the western has blue gills. Alan- has anyone studied the distinctions between the eastern and western races?

so far as arora and others report does not occur in northern california, however clitocybe odora are very prevalent in foothills this time of year (with varying degrees of color to cap and stipe).

no spore print yet. My smeller has gone the way of my teeth. My wife says it smells vaguely perfumed, almost oriental.

beautiful mushroom!
