Occurrence Remarks:

Under pine.

Extremely strong odor both fresh and dried. Hard to describe, kind of kind dried shrimp.

When I picked this collection I put it in a paper bag and left it on the dashboard. The next morning I was driving and my car smelled awful. I accused my friends of leaving something rotting, but they wouldn’t fess up. The car smelled awful, like an ocean of dead seafood. Later I realized it was my mushrooms and apologized to my friends.

Spores minutely to moderately bumpy, inequilateral, ellipsoid to mango shaped.
