of just why Arora named this species cantharellicola!
is an indicator species for location and fruiting times of Cantharellus californicus, It is not uncommon for C. californicus to grow under a R. eccentrica as pictured here. They both grow under live oak and fruit at the same time in the same places. It is highly unlikely this is C. formosus growing so close to this Russula. Also the hymenum does not look right for formosus and is more indicative of californicus.
Russula eccentrica under California Live oak is separated from Russula eccentrica not found under California Live oak. Kuo also notes that some of this group (Blackening and Blushing Russulas) will likely be changed once more stringent work has been done on them.
Interesting, in that I did not know of Russula eccentrica before.
gills “color when young, off-white, becoming dingy-cream, bruising vinaceous-pink to rusty-brown, especially the edges, not turning black”. Quite common here in Coastal live oak habitat early in the season.
have pink gills? Isn’t it supposed to be very rare?
They are definitely C. californicus, a common companion here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
in the group are likely Cantharellus formosus. Post a separate obs. for them.
