Observation 110754: Russula subsect. Foetentinae (Melzer & Zvára) Singer
When: 2012-09-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Collected in well-manicured lawn near Quercus palustris, which may be the mycorrhizal host. One photo seems to show a rose-colored cap: this is an optical illusion I cannot explain. The cap in person is dark tan to buff-brown. Specimen looks to have been partially eaten, perhaps from abundant population of non-native Red squirrels in the area.

Cap is 3-4 inches in diameter. Stipe is white, does not stain when bruised or scratched with a fingernail. Gills are white, blunt, nearly crowded.
