What has been called chamaeleontina is now R. risigallina

with more orange colors and a smell reminiscent of roses when drying out or at the beginning of fading away, and what has been called R.lutea is now R. acetolens with a smell reminiscent of vinegar under the same conditions. But in R.chamaeleontina there was probably R. ochracea included, a very rare and still dubious species. So your collection is Russula acetolens.

The name game here

is such a mess, and not settled yet.. I prefer to call it lutea because it has been known as that for a long time. I don’t think chamaeleontina is useful either, I think it included a relative with more rosy to orange colours.

is it now called
