is possible because of the color of the gills, however it is difficult to figure out any mushroom through the photos
for example red Russulas recently, most of them are placed in Russula sect. Emeticinae
Without knowing whether they are acrid or not ,in my humble opinion

Thanks Eva

That’s what I was thinking, however not having any luck with these guys. I was also leaning towards R. paludosa, however the spores from my collection seem a bit on the thin side compared to various references. Another possibility is R. decolorans, but this collection doesn’t exhibit any bruising/discoloring (even after 12-24 hours). Any ideas???
