Observation 11985: Russula Pers.
When: 2008-10-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Used Aurora’s Mushrooms Demystified key to reach this identification. Cap 3.5-4.5 inches wide, light yellow on cream-colored background, extremely viscid when picked in a rainstorm (rather like any other mushroom picked in a rainstorm). Stipe white, does not change color after being scratched, thick, solid; gills white, fairly thick and well-spaced; cap so viscid it appears to have a thick clear gelatinous top.

I have just added photos from another Russula which appears to be similar enough to R. cremoricolor to include them here.

David Arora (pg97 in MD) said that the cap is is white to pallid or pale yellow not orange yellow, is it acrid or hot tasting?
Remember there are probably a dozen other russulas whith that color,
