Observation 10583: Russula Pers.
When: 2008-08-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These are hard to spot, because they push up under pine needles. When these are cleaned off, typically what you find is a damaged mushroom with much of the outer part of the cap gone, and moisture everywhere. It looks like a Russula. Whichever species it is, it’s a favorite of bugs and slugs, and is always quickly destroyed by these after it reaches maturity.

First two photos show same specimen.
