This would confirm that my Russula is R.compacta

thank you

Yours and my findings are almost the same.

yesterday I saw your Mycena praedecurrens and noticed that is the same as mine, which I found a day or two ago.

I thought this may interest you.


It looks like a very dark R. compacta to me.

If I dot feel certain about an R. compacta ID, the fishy odor usually convinces me.

did not smell it

What do you think could be?

Evica, the cap on this one is a little darker…

than I recall seeing on R. compacta. Did it have the fishy odor? Bruising of gills looks right.
