Observation 1698: Russula brevipes var. acrior Shaffer
When: 2006-12-19
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Hadn’t seen these up there before, and kinda neat. The second photo is from the next morning to try and get as much of the greenish tint of the lamellae, which is kinda a minty hue. But the green, which is slight, didn’t come out very well in the photo.

But these are different than the R. brevipes, esp. in the lamellae. They are kinda soft and thin, almost hygrophorus like, where the R. brevipes lamellae are pretty brittle and thick, and break up into peices when you rub them.

I think there is a better name for this one now, R. chloriodes? To suggest the green is like chlorine I guess. But I can’t remember a ref. to this one, I should google it, or someone could point it out?
