Observation 5845: Russula Pers.
When: 2007-12-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: A group of these were found fruiting under live oak. They didn’t appear to be very fresh and I was unable to get a spore print. 3.7cm tall.
Pileus: 3cm across, olive brown changing to red brown as it dries. Striate margins on some, possibly younger specimens? Margin inrolled, umbo slightly depressed. Viscid and rather viscous, when wet, resembling old jello to the touch.
Gills: decurrent, attached, paler brown than pileus.
Stipe: 1 cm across at apex, dirty white, bruising dirty brown when handled. Not shown in photos— dirty red stain near base. Narrower at apex, widening at base then tapering.

Well, it looks a lot like an old Russula.
