Observation 87451: Russula mustelina group

When: 2011-09-24

Collection location: Yosemite National Park, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dimitar Bojantchev (dimitar)

Specimen available

As Harry Thiers noted, Russula mustelina is not uncommon in the high Sierra/Cascade range under firs (Abies concolor/Abies grandis). And as he noted it is a lot more common in the Shasta range. This Yosemite collection represents a species, which is very, very close to the European Russula mustelina. This Russula stands apart with its firmness. It can be easily be mistaken for the other mild edible Russula in the area.

Collection: DBB46521


Same species collected in Shasta-Trinity
