Observation 11588: Russula Pers.
When: 2008-09-25
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

This is an odd one. Found under birch and pine, it resembles a young Lactarius mushroom, with the cap rim rolled up tight against the stem (second and third photos), but breaking a chunk off (fourth photo) did not produce latex. (It does show, just barely, the structure of the curled up cap and gills though.)

Could be one of the Russulas closely related to the Lactarius common-ancestor. Could be lots of things.
