Observation 142403: Russula Pers.

When: 2013-08-11

Collection location: Big Mosquito Lake, Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sava Krstic (sava)

No specimen available

On mossy soil near hemlock and alder.

The mushrooms became so limp and watery when I got home, so I didn’t save them.

Odor rather strong, hard to describe. Taste acrid, not very strong. Cap cuticle peels off 3/4, reddish underneath.

Spores almost round, ~9 microns.
