we all know that mushrooms have different odors, I have smelt some wonderful almond buttery smells to stinky dirt smells... the Cubensis has a very distinct musky odor. Today, i was walking around outside at work and noticed a patch of dark brown mushrooms in the old mulch that were starting to dry out.. i looked at them and then smelled... they smelt exactly like cubensis. I havent been able to I.D. the mushrooms just yet. waiting on a spore print. Im wondering if there is any corelation between the two.. as far as the distinct smell. I hope I have posted in the right forum.
I believe there is a correlation between the smell of a cube and other mushrooms that smell like it. For example, Pluteus salicinus can have a distinct cube smell. It is described as "farinaceous," which means "mealy," or like grain. That isn't a very accurate description though. It's about as accurate as saying something smells fruity. There are all kinds of fruit. A pineapple smells nothing like strawberry.
Last year I picked a Cortinarius that stained blue and smelled like a cube. Some are them are poisonous so I didn't eat it. I still think it may be actice.
