These fragile Russulas were found in a woods dominated by tulip poplar, ash and various oaks. Caps are about 5 cm across, striated at the margin, smooth and dry. Stipe is white, non-bruising and hollow by design, like R. tenuiceps. Gills are white but age cream and produce a cream spore print. Taste is acrid. FeSO4 on stipe gives a pink reaction. KOH on pink areas of the cap bleach it to the yellow of the center, which does not change color with KOH. Any ideas as to species?
