Sorry, I did not take note of any other information for this. Just wanted a nice picture : ) In mixed hardwood forrest, mainly beech, altitude 200m.

Please, give some more information to your mushroom.

You should say whether you have found the fungus in the oak, beech, birch, spruce or pine forrest. Whether the spore powder is white, cream, yellow and ocher, or whether the taste of the Russula is mild, hot or burning hot.

If the cap is ochre to yellow, the flesh is more or less mild (highest moderately hot) and unchangeable (does not turn to gray, brown or black), the spore print is more or less white, the fungus grows at beech or spruce it is very likely an R. ochroleuca (Zitronentäubling). (This is no identification!) R. ochroleuca is the most common russula in Germany. Under the weblink (Täubling der Woche) in you see same typical fotos.
