Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These were ubiquitous in Zones 04 and 06. The pictured specimen was in Zone 04 under mixed mostly hardwoods (red and white pine likely present close by, Balsam fir a definite; hardwoods include Acer sp., Betula allegheniensis, Betula papyrifera).

These are funnel-shaped with decurrent lamellae including lamellulae. Brittle and other things point to Russulales and this particular one exuded no latex when I snapped a piece off the cap edge (this damage is visible in two of the photos).

These seemed smaller and “tidier” than the typical R. brevipes.
