Clitocybe odora

Common Name: Fragrant Clitocybe

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: White

Comments: 

There are two distinctive features about this mushroom that can make it a fairly easy ID. The first is the blue-green coloration to the cap. With age, however, this color can fade, making the ID a bit more difficult. The second thing to look for is the smell. It should be very fragrant, with desriptions mentioning anise or black licorice. This smell can also go away with age. Stem is whitish

Other than that, as with most Clitocybe, you are looking for gills that are attached to the stem or slightly run down it, and a whitish/cream to pinkish spore print.

Edible.
