Collected from a predominantly Western hemlock forest. Found several of these rather large and distinctively colored Russulas, but having difficulty keying them out. Cap is 4 inches in diameter, inrolled, grayish-brown, striate at margin; Stipe is white, and 5-6 inches long; gills are white.

I had considered it (along with other Russulas). I rejected it (perhaps too soon!) because of the rather uniform olive-drab coloration without much color variation nor with much forking of the gills, which Aurora seems to think important. I honestly can’t say. It is similar to an olive-drab Russula exhibited at the OMS Show yesterday, but seems to me larger than those. That shouldn’t exclude it, but it is not an exact match, either.
