Observation 2448: Russula Pers.

When: 2007-02-15

Collection location: Howarth Park, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Since I can’t pick mushrooms in the parks I frequent, I’m always thrilled when someone or something has already been there and done that for me! I found this among bay and oak but didn’t see any indication that that’s where it originated. It had a slightly peppery taste that didn’t linger. The pileus was 6 cm across and the stipe was 7 cm tall. R. maculata? R. silvicola?
