Observation 177989: Russula Pers.
When: 2014-09-12
(45.8027° -77.1428° 200m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: A different, likely-unidentifiable Russula in Zone 38. This has a pink margin shading to a darker violet in the center, while the other had a pink margin shading to a paler yellow in the center. Stature of this species seems squatter than the other. Only the one nibbled-on specimen was evident at the site. Chanterelles were also seen nearby.

Trees about this Zone are diverse: Pinus strobus, P. resinosa, and P. banksiana; Abies balsamea; Betula papyrifera; Acer saccharum; Populus tremuloides; and possibly others (for instance, there’s a tiny oak that usually just shows as a few large leaves on a twig-sized stem that appears here and there in the more tree-diverse parts of these woods; it may be present in 38).
