Observation 108315: Russula ventricosipes Peck
When: 2012-09-01
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Tan capped Russula with reddish-pink flush on stipe and gill edges. Found partially buried in sandy soil in pitch pine/oak woods in the New Jersey Pinelands. It has a subtle almond smell and hot acrid taste. Spore print is color A-B (white-pale cream) according to the Kibby-Fatto scale. Amyloid ellipsoid spores with blunt (less than 1 micron) isolated warts. 20 Spore average 7.4 × 4.8 microns, Qm = 1.53. Looks somewhat similar in appearance to my Observation 104626, however the almond smell is less intense and the spore shape and ornamentation is very different.

I looked it up and it’s a very good match.
