Collection location: Los Trancos Preserve, Palo Alto, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under live oak.

Name taken from Theirs’ Russula of CA, where these best match that description. Taste a delayed acrid, nothing much for 4-5 secs, and then strongly acrid. The color is more pinkish-salmon then red, and the color fades as the mushroom ages.
