    I have found someone selling some fungus that they claim is h. odorus. I was wondering if someone could tell me if these are actually h. odorus or perhaps something else? I can provide pictures.

      I am not an expert in this fungus and cannot ID it from pictures (also, ID by picture is always difficult and often inaccurate). My advice: research the seller as best you can to determine whether or not they have a reputation for providing correctly ID’d mushrooms. There are also numerous Facebook groups that do mushroom ID by picture, although it still helps if you have the actual mushroom so you can assess non-visual features (like odor) as well as features that don’t photograph well.
