Observation 10613: Russula Pers.
When: 2008-08-09
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Kidney-shaped caps, off-center stems, and other odd features. Some looked somewhat dried out and others a bit fresher, so perhaps two fruitings close together in time. They were scattered in the rough near some mature trees, probably cedars.

near these were two-needle pines. No birch that I can recall.

would have a disturbed growth when it has to pass through old grass on its way up.
This one reminds of Russula claroflava (it should be greying, have a mild taste and grow with birch).

Which russulas sometimes have kidney-shaped caps?
