Description: Original observation #4617 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: Id'ed by Dr. Desjardin, by the disgusting odor. Really gross, like rotting damp dirty really old socks. But strangly, half the people the smelled these thought they smelled like cheese instead. So, it seems you are in one of two camps, these are either very disgusting, or cheesy smelling corts.
