Observation 23029: Russula Pers.

When: 2009-07-08

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Maybe the same species as in http://www.mushroomobserver.org/22859 — the first specimen (first nine photos) was found in Zone 11 within a few dozen feet of where that one had been. The second (next two) was a much older mushroom, found some distance away in Zone 11, and further on was a third specimen of intermediate age (next seven photos).

Quaking aspen, birch, balsam fir, white pine, and maple are near all four sites where I recently saw these russulas. Jack pine is near one or two of them, but not all four.

I guess it has some red-orange in it

Taste ? hot or mild?
Spore print if possible,
I don’t think there was any color change,
What kind of trees was it under,?
Perhaps Russula ochroleucoides if spore print is pure white and if it is found under deciduous, (not likely)
or Russula claroflava if it stains slightly gray…..don’t think so…..
