Applanate, deeply depressed greenish caps with yellowish and pinkish spots. some portions of the caps looked as if they were becoming areolate. Caps 55-65mm, Stipes 55-60 mm long. caps orbicular with a decurved margin, and a wet pileal surface. Trama, white and brittle. Taste peppery. No odor. The gills were crowde, deccurent, and flexible to the point were I could rub my finger over them and they would return upright without breaking like most russulas do. The gills were forked quite frequently. Stipe, white with fine longitudinal lines and tapered towards the base, chalky, solid but becoming hollow. Found solitary in Oak woods.
