Collection location: Wharton State Forest at Batsto Lake, New Jersey, USA [Click for map]
> A single basidiome growing in moss under cedars, pitch pines and a small deciduous tree on the bank of Nescochague Creek.
> Cap = ~4.5 cm in diameter; stipe = ~5 cm long.
> Cuticle effortlessly peeled to about 3/4 of radius
> No odor; taste mild
> Spore print (en masse) at 50% relative humidity = C-D (see photo)
> Keyed out to AILN/OQT, but, as expected, no reasonable matches found in Kibby/Fatto. Red Russulas of the NJ Pinelands are so much fun!
