When: 2014-09-10
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

Extremely large, deeply purple-red capped shrimp russula found beneath Douglas fir and Western hemlock trees(in campground). Indian Creek Campground in Wenatchee National Forest would be the biggest Lobster mushroom supplier in the PNW if only hypomyces lactiflourum were introduced… Might have to do some transfers this season. Found R.xerampelina and R.brevipes the size of large dinner plates in almost every open campsite here today.

Odor: Pleasant, shrimp like.

Elevation: 3000ft.

Temp: low 70’s.

NOTE: Brightly pink tones to all stems- especially at top of stipe nearest to cap. Compare to bright pink chapstick in 3rd image.
