Observation 21279: Russula maculata Quél. & Roze

When: 2006-12-15

Collection location: Marian Bear Park, Clairemont, San Diego, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Christian (Christian Schwarz)

No specimen available

The date is pretty close, within 1 week.

I thought I’d post this to make a record of what people in San Diego are calling (or used to call) R. maculata. It can be completely red, orangey-red, or quite pale, often all in one mushroom at different stages.
Taste varies from mild to slightly acrid.
Smell not distinct.
