One beautiful sunny day, I went for mushroom hunting. It was raining several days ago, so I decided to go. At first I found nothing, but suddenly I noticed two brown mushrooms growing near conifer tree. I went near. Mushrooms were hidden in leaves. So I cleaned them and picked. They were normal-sized mushrooms, with white gills, white stem and brown skin. The mushroom was round and was not skinny. The diameter of mushroom cap was about 8cm. Stem length was about 6cm and thickness was 1.5cm. The cap was not sticky and wet. The cap skin was easy removable. The stem and flesh were totally white. They did not produce milk when broke. Mushroom had mild smell. However I did not eat. I think this mushroom was Russula Vesca


I have taken photos after several hours. Stems are cut.

of the cap skin was removable? If half the radius or more, it’s probably some other Russula..
