Collection location: Larch Mountain, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

While the photos did not show much of the rosy stipe, it is there. I would call it more of rose blush than truly rosy. The cap just under the cuticle also has a reddish stain to it.

Recognized by sight: Definitely wrong cap colour for Russula sanguinea if the photo shows it right. It has more or less decurrent gills, and the cap cuticle is hardly loosening at all.
