Observation 24260: Russula Pers.
When: 2009-08-12
No herbarium specimen

Notes: One of the large white vase-shaped Russulas. (Fourth photo shows the negative results of the latex check, with a positive result for brittleness.) Found in Zone 05. I see lots of these each summer in various parts of these woods but they have a very short shelf life before they go to hell in a big way; today I was fortunate enough to catch this one still in its prime. (I saw another in nearly-as-good condition in Zone 12; not photographed.)
