Harry - Cassopolis, Michigan, 17 June 2011 I believe this is the Clavicorona Pyxidata, based on researh on your site as well as numerous other sites. Natural taste is 'peppery', per your description, with a bit of an 'afterburn' like pepper. Unfortunately my photo is not well taken and I picked the mushroom after so I will have to wait for more to grow to take a tripod and get a better photo.
