This is a common mushroom in Autumn and can often be found individually or in large numbers. It’s toxicity is in question but as other small Dapperlings can be very poisonous this one should also be treated with suspicion. It’s common name refers to the unpleasant smell of rubber or coal gas from this mushroom.
