Observation 171274: Russula claroflava Grove. ss. Melz, & Zv., J. Schff.

When: 2014-07-25

Collection location: Lackawanna State Forest, Dupont, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Phil Yeager (gunchky)

No specimen available

Mixed woods. Cuticule peels easily- halfway or more-, stipe brittle, taste mild, no odor. Gills attached, close, white, aging yellowish. Closest guess I could make is R. raoultii, based on color and pilipellis peeling as mentioned in Phillips. But once again it would only be a guess.

I Re-read Phillips and R. claroflava seems to fit best.

I went thru Phillips and thought about R. claroflava etal, but could’nt make any definite decisions, and Phillips made no refference to the degree of pileal peeling on claroflava, and my friend simply mentioned finding it in mixed woods with Hemlock being the predominate species. Don’t really know the exact type of ecosystem. This was brought to me by a friend and was a bit old, no spores. Thanks for your comments. Phil

What do you
