If no other collections found, probably NOT with Red pine. A Red pine plantation should be well colonized with fungus. If this is the only Russula found that day, more likely the specimen observation was associated with the oak seedling.

At Paul Bishop’s Jones Creek Tree Farm, some specifics were generalized. Where no other specimens were found the same day/week, then the seedlings were presumed to be the host. Sometimes these seedlings were less than 2 years old. Yet they supported, among others, Tuber oregonense, Hymenogaster sps., Barssia oregonense, Scleroderma sps. (S. hypogaeum?), Laccaria laccata, Laccaria amethystina-occidentalis, and in certain places, Cantharellus.

Apparently tree size does not limit fungal fruitings.

remind me of R. compacta which has an odor of dead fish, to me, as it ages or dries. Can be associated with hardwoods or conifers in northern NA according to Kuo.

but proximity to seedling oak suggests that is the host tree.
