At least five Russulas in the east that can be green and have either quilting or crust or a striate margin. There seems little agreement on which is which. I found something very similar to this collection this past weekend in Sky Meadows SP. (http://mushroomobserver.org/169133). I reserve R. parvovirescens (http://mushroomobserver.org/55480?q=23mPk)for the large ones – over 4" – and interestingly, many of those often have at least one reddish stain somewhere on the cap.

R. crustosa, R. parvovirescens, R. subgraminar, R. variata, R. virescens, R. etc.

Thanks Debbie

For the references. It’s high season for Russulales here in Culpeper! Penny

probably parvovirescens …

although there are also a few greenish quilted cryptic species.

here’s a nice page on parvovirescens from Bart Buyck’s website, “Russulales News:”


Kuo also has a nice page on this, with plenty of microscopy details:
