Clitocybe robusta

Common Name: Foul Clitocybe

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood forests

Spore Color: Dull yellow

Gill Color: White to slightly yellowish

Comments: 

Look for white cap and white stem, gills slightly running down the stem, crowded gills, no veil, and growing on the ground. The margin of the cap is usually inrolled. The spores should be a yellowish color. The key feature is that it has a foul odor, especially if you break the stem and smell it. 

Lookalikes: 

Clitocybe irina has a pinkish spore print. Clitoplius prunulus has a dark pink spore print and a suede-like feel to the cap. Also usually a wavy margin. Hygrophorus eberneus has a sticky cap and stem, as well as wide gill spacing.
