with all of her decades of experience, didn’t recognize these!

good luck in the ID process.

I didn’t taste (or even smell, maybe?) it

I was collecting for LAMS and annoyed at having to deal with all these bulky things (Amanita, Russula, Lactarius, Cortinarius), trying to get it over with.

Also, assumed a green Russula in LA would be a trivial ID for someone there.

Florence Nishida took these home to try to key them out, I’ll update the obs if she gets something.

mild or acrid?
