Collection location: Hunlock Creek, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

I have seen this type in my yard a few times. Usually, the fruit bodies have become fragile to the point of crumbling. This collection was intact.

Color seemingly quite distinctive… even for a Russula, shiny whitish/grayish with a metalic sheen and vinaceous patches/center. Sulcate margin. Stipe stuffed with spongy material, becoming hollow/chambered, white with light rosy areas. Growing in a grassy area with apple trees nearby. Gills thick and wide with cross veins, creamy light yellowish.

Spore print creamy pale yellow.

Will bring some material to NEMF.
