Observation 10689: Russula Pers.

When: 2008-08-19

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

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These were at the base of a pine, on a hillock covered in roots and needles, with a bit of grass and a broad-leafed understory plant.

Red-brown cap shading to orange-tan in the center, thick short white stalk, white gills and flesh, damage — everything you expect in a woodland Russula.

Fifth through seventh images show the same group of three mushrooms after three days had passed. All too often I find my Russulas already in such a damaged state when I first see them; these ones I was fortunate enough to find first when still nearly fresh.
