I wasn’t sure what this was when I found it, but upon sniffing the gills of the first one, I noticed a definite cinnamon smell, however, the more I sniffed it, the raunchier it seemed.

I though perhaps Armillaria ponderosa, A. caligata or Lentinus ponderosa, however, the gills weren’t serrated on any of them, and to the best of my knowledge there was no pine around. There were fir and redwoods though.

They were large, even the button was as large as a baseball.

The narrowed rooting stipe makes me thing Lentinus, but still no serration on the gills makes me wonder.

Recognized by sight: Looks clearly like a Russula to me, not sure about the species name at all though
