Observation 8693: Russula Pers.
When: 2008-08-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: mushrooms needing identification, 16437 was found in a forest in clusters, in a dark shady area under what seemed to be fir trees as the floor was covered in dead pine needles., stem did snap, currently trying a spore print however it seems that slugs really love the taste of this as theres not much left lol. It also has a bit of a rubber feel to it

The older the mushroom, the less likely that you’ll get a spore print, slugs notwithstanding. Rubbery is not a feature associated with Russula. Not sure what you have here…

Gills brittle?

Does stem snap! like a piece of chalk? could be a russula, a white gilled, white spored species.

Try separating out your sightings; there are too many species in this photo series!
