Observation 18797: Russula fuegiana Singer
When: 2009-02-23
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: By itself in leaves; CAP 4" wide, viscid at some point, glabrous; GILL shallow cross-veins, adnate; STIPE slightly bulbous at base, mycelial fuzz white; SPORE could be white or cream; OTHER no odor, no latex, flesh doesn’t bruise, VERY ACRID!

I thought this might be the same as observation 18532, but that one was not acrid at all.
