it was, I have eaten it.
Strong smell like harring of course. Mountain spruce forest about 1300 m a.s.l. …

Why is that xerampelina?

Why do you think that this is R. xerampelina? Of course it is possible, because the cap color can be very variable, but in my opinion it is not very typical. I find it almost purple colored with nearly black center and smelling like herring (A thing you can not see on the picture). Can you tell me (us) what smell, taste, spore print, habitat and possibly which FeSo4-reaction this Russula has? To things speak for your identification: The flesh seems to brown and it seems to grow in a coniferous forest (with spruce or pine?).
