Fragrant Clitocybe Mushroom
Clitocybe odora

While Fragrant Clitocybe may appear to have a good case of green mildew, don't be fooled by its appearance. Things are exactly as they should be. The cap is flat, moist, radially streaked with hairs that are bluish green to pale green and those are covered with a whitish cast. The gills may be adnate (scales), or may be extending partially down the stalk. The stalk is white to buff. Fragrant Clitocybe emits a strong odor of anise. Its preferred habitat is under hardwoods or mixed hardwood stands. Spores occur in the summer and autumn.
