Observation 110755: Russula subsect. Foetentinae (Melzer & Zvára) Singer
When: 2012-09-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Russula species collected near Quercus palustris; but also across the street from a 150-foot tall Douglas-fir. Cap is buff-brown with a slight orange tint to it; has striated edges, sometimes with raised or enlarged bumps, which are not regular in shape, size, or thickness. Stipe is 4-5 inches long, largest at the base and nearly equal until about 1/2 inch from the cap, where the stipe suddenly gets smaller. Lower 1.5 inches of stipe have much darker brown spots on them.Gills are white, convoluted but not noticeably joined together: I would call the gill placement “ruffled”. Gills have holes irregularly placed in them, but most closer to the cap surface than the edge of the gills. Some cross-hatching of gills. Some joining of gills near the stipe too.
