But be aware the parasitism is going on underground and the Asterophora is using the Russula fruiting as a place to fruit.

so does it?

Take something like a small paint brush and cover the bristles with the powdery spores, then go find some blushing Russula victims and dust them with the spores.

Cool… I would collect the fruiting bodies and dust some more Russula with the spores to get more photos later!!
