Observation 10583: Russula Pers.

When: 2008-08-03

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These are hard to spot, because they push up under pine needles. When these are cleaned off, typically what you find is a damaged mushroom with much of the outer part of the cap gone, and moisture everywhere. It looks like a Russula. Whichever species it is, it’s a favorite of bugs and slugs, and is always quickly destroyed by these after it reaches maturity.

First two photos show same specimen.
