No specimen available

A huge (tea saucer sized) orange/copper-colored Russula, with a delicate pink color to its stipe and whitish gills (look yellower in the photo than they were). Found in Zone 45 under mixed woods. The same species has been seen previously in the area, and in Zone 10 (which has since been destroyed by logging) which was pine-dominated but near to maple, aspen, Balsam fir, and birch. Pinus strobus, Pinus resinosa, Acer sp., and Betula papyrifera near both sites.
