Observation 146901: Russula Pers.

A couple of groups growing near each other and in a Sitka spruce habitat.
Caps were viscid and up to 5.8 cm across.
Stipes had a pinkish tint which persisted after drying.
Taste was mild and no discernible odor.
Could not get a decent spore print but they appeared to be whitish.
Spores were ~ 8.0-9.0 X 6.4-7.9 micons, subglobose to broadly ellipsoid and with large isolated warts.
These seemed fairly distinctive but haven’t yet found a match.


Spore from first group of 5 @ 1000X.
Spores from second pair @ 1000X.
