R. densifolia vs R. nigricans

Russula densifolia is suppose to have thin, crowded gills that stay supple. R. nigricans has thick, distant gills that are always brittle and break easily. Later R. nigricans can be recognized by the blackening that starts on the gill edge and the gills have a yellow cast, where as R. densifolia remain white before aging blackish brown.
