Observation 1699: Russula

Ok, I’m going with R. eccentrica on these, and giving up on the R. subnigricans, because of the notes by Thiers in the Agaricales of CA. One thing he seems to be off in the description, that Arora does get, is the disgusting smell when these get old. When young they smell fine, or not much at all. But old they start to develop a vomit odor.

The staining is distinctive on these, because it is sooooo slow. It does almost nothing at first, and takes 10mins to get to a red brown, and then another 20 mins for that to fade, and then ends up a brown-grey.

(I think I said this before, I’m starting to repeat myself…)
