Yeah, sure…

Yeah sure I suppose. I find that with mild taste, purplish caps, under conifers, I’m just not comfortable with any sort of id on these Russula. There seem to be too many species described there. I guess should maybe try again with M. Davis’ Russula key, and see what that does for me. But I’ve tried and not gotten any sort of good feeling in understanding the species here, a few times now.

I’ve given up for a couple years now, maybe I should give it a try again next year?

Well if it was mild

was there any reason not to consider it as part of the R. xerampelina group?
Wine colored cap, pink flush to the stipe, yellowing on the gills and stipe, pines…

Nope sorry -

If I remember correctly, it was mild. I didn’t try to collect it, since I didn’t think would really be able to id it… Just posting it to be a little more complete on the Quail Hollow stuff for you and Adam.

This one…

The nemesis of novice R. xerampelina hunters…
The smaller fruitbody here is especially close to some of the R. xerampelina in the area, but I assume these were really acrid?
