I don’t believe its R aerugina because the flesh is mild on that one and spore print is different it is yellowish to cream colored Where as this specimen has a white spore print. Also the spores are more elliptical on this specimen than R aeruginea.

This is very small russula only 3 cm

I figured it was R. fragilis because of the size and flesh. Its flesh is very fragile. I was reading that R fragilis comes in many color forms. What makes this not fragilis.?

Not R. fragilis
