Observation 10704: 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

This spectacular pair of russulas look somewhat different, but were found adjacent (last photo shows both together). They looked gorgeous in the sun-dappled woods, particularly the one with the irregularly-shaped pale zone in the center.

The seventh photo shows the same mushroom as in the fifth photo, three days later. It’s significantly more trashed.
