Observation 72782: Russula Pers.

When: 2011-07-25

Collection location: Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found in forest of Larch (Larix) and Spruce (Picea).

Viscid caps, mostly pale pink, some deeper shades slightly, some lighter, some a little darker in the disc. White stipe, gills that start very pale, and go deep yellow in age. Taste mild.

These were kinda common, esp. under larch, here and there around. Sorry I only got this bad photo, but I felt like I didn’t want to waste time with yet another Russula id, that people would question and poo-poo back to generic status in anycase (you know who you are…). And sure enough after looking in books for an hour or so, I don’t really feel confident about any id there, so you can put whatever name you want on these I guess.
