As with obs 223067, this collection came from the same magnificent CCC plantation of P. strobus. Of all the russulas I ever collected in the USA, this one had the most unique combination of cap colors not observed previously. I noticed a slight and diffuse pinkish hue, in addition to the color scheme already mentioned by Luke, when I encountered these specimens.
