An interesting find for me as well.

I had not seen it before. I also found two red specimens of Xerampelina type (closer to the typical form seen in most manuals) early in the summer. It was posted by my alter ego Dave in NE PA (using two different computers means two different names), so I’ll find it later when I’m using my home computer. Interestingly, the earlier red ones were found on the edge of an oak woods.

I have a dried cap of 26419 at home. So if anyone is interested, the specimen is available.

I did some research on that one ((http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/19908)) and found out that they are supposed to grow under Deciduous trees (oaks) and have a cream spore print, according Moser Meinhard “Keys to Agarics and Boleti” it is a good book of keys do you have it?, this is an interesting find one for me.

It’s ok.

Change it to Russula sp. (section Xerampelae) if it won’t let you delete it.

…get rid of the second name, or edit it to Russula (section Xerampelae)? Until that’s done that botched name can’t be deleted, and until THAT’s done EVERY attempt to post a Russula observation causes an extra confirmation step.

P.S. The link parser still chokes on section names like the above.
