or slowly acrid taste as one expects for R. variata. Also, these were not the only ones fruiting in this general area. And every specimen showed the same mix of green and yellow on the cap. As the name implies, R. variata has a hard time deciding what color to show. But (at least some of) the spores for my collection appear to be too elongated to qualify as “subglobose”, which is what Phillips says about the spore shape for heterophylla.

White spore print and mild taste.
