Notes: Found under live oak.
From Prof. Davis’ work, it seems that there are probably 5 species of these in northern CA at least, and it is uncertain as to which develop green gills, if not all of them, and it is not certain on how to tell the difference among these. He also goes on to suggest that R. brevipes is so well separated from other Russula that maybe they should get a different genus name.
This one is a little interesting, the lamellulae join up with the lamellae when they terminate. Not sure I’ve seen that before in R. brevipes.
