Observation 10752: Russula flaviceps Peck

When: 2008-08-19

Collection location: Jemez Mountains, Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found d. fir, spruce and aspen (but mostly under d. fir). These were kinda a shocking yellow, I’ve haven’t seen ones of this color in California. I got the name here from “Mushrooms Demystified”, but the Russula section there is so rough, I’m not sure that might be close to right. These are mild tasting, yellow spored, and a deep lemon yellow cap.
