Notes: This was found in loose soil and forest litter and had been exposed by the dogs. The canopy is typical D. fir, tanoak and madrone. It’s a little one, but it kind of has a Russula look to it. Possibly R. placita is close to a match, but Russulas are tough to separate here and there seem to be many species erupting in the same time frame. My library is limited, ATTRPAM, & MD by David Arora, and it seems to be obsolete now.

Might also be Arcangeliella, a kind of hypogeous Lactarius which often is fragrant, small, and usually has some latex present. Russula might also be correct. I can’t tell from the photos whether there is a clear latex present or not. My experience with Arcangeliella is limited, having only found specimens of A. camphorata, which has a distinctive aroma to my nose of sweet medicinal aroma, but which is described as having an aroma similar to eucalyptus.
