When I was looking through the Clitocybe odora observations.

I noticed these very pale ones and this was the most striking example. At the very least its a different concept than what I am used to further west. I would not be surprised if they don’t represent the same taxon.

Also no indication as to whether these

could have been under the weather (such as rain) or bleached slightly by bright light.

I retract my vote. It would be nice to see DNA on these types as well, eventually…

especially around the edges.

It’s common for the PNW/Alaska/Rockies forms (non-var. pacifica) to be extensively pale, nearly white:

observation 216028
observation 201986
observation 176784
observation 143452

The ribbed cap is also a good clue

Can you please show me a Clitocybe odora description that indicates they can be entirely white? I did not find one.
