Observation 61787: Russula sect. Emeticinae Melzer & Zvára.

When: 2011-01-04

Collection location: El Corte De Madera Creek Open Space, San Mateo Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Tom (LanLord)

No specimen available

I’m not sure I know the difference between the red phase of Russula creamoracolor and Russula emetica. So I may be off on these.

I did taste it, it was slowly acrid, but certainly not the worst I’ve tried.

The habitat

El Corta de Madera is a mix of both deciduous (live oak, tan oak, madrone, bay, manzanita and perhaps a couple others, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen beech there) and conifer (doug fir, some pine, redwood) so I would think the habitat should be okay for R. emetica/R. cremoricolor.

Russula emetica and cremoricolor is the same. See comment to obs 34600.
But the habitat here suggests something else (had it been in Europe, I would have guessed Russula mairei).
