Observation 149439: Russula “cyanoxantha”
When: 2013-10-16
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found growing singly in conifers @ ~5000ft.
Caps up to 11.5 cm across with stout stems up to 4.9 cm across.
Spore print white.
Spores ~ 8.0-10.2 X 6.0-8.0 microns, with low warts and sparse reticulations.
No strong odor and taste was mild.
There were several of these found (2 collected) growing alone in the same general area. They all had pretty much the same colors and stature.
The Thiers monograph and Mike Davis’s Gallery did not seem to have a match?

with those low, sparse spore ornamentations, as well as the stout stature, forked gills (especially near the stipe), mild taste, mottled cap colors, and cleft cap (not a strong feature, but often present in this group).
