This is one of the most common species in Central Europe but no good edible

Its characteristics are the dull cinnabar red cap and the extremely hard stalk.
The vernicular name therefore is “Hard Cinnabar-Russula”. The flesh has a slight pencil taste to it and is hard too so it is not to be recommended for eating.
