would like to read about color variations within Russula species, read Kuo’s Russula page. It’s a very lengthy paragraph describing one authors concept of color within one species.
and this took me awhile to (I think) understand. R. atropurpurea is the name applied to a European species. The similar NA mushroom is called R. vinacea.
Cap color here seems more purple than red. Of course, with some Russula species cap color varies quite a bit. Fruity odor supports vinacea/atropurpurea/krombholzii.
