Observation 168941: Russula modesta Peck
When: 2014-06-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: > Like the waxcaps I posted a bit earlier, these also came from the general vicinity of the bog in Chatsworth.
> Two basidiocarps growing within a foot of each other on dry ground in leaf litter under unidentified deciduous trees. I’ve included a picture of tree leaves, hoping someone can identify the host.
> Cuticle peeled only 1/4. Flesh was very mild-tasting. No pronounced odor. No staining of cut flesh. FeSO4 eventually grayish on cap.
> Couldn’t get the spore color due to a very weak spore print.
> Spore measurements:
[8/1/1]: L x W = 6.3-7.4 × 4.7-6 (-6.5)um; warts up to 0.75 um long; a few connectors, some contiguous.
