Observation 248976: Russula arnoldae

All characteristics appear to fit description online at Russulales News except for one which I can not confirm without Meltzers. The characteristic is that of the single oil drop.

That sight does not have a photograph.

Description of my find:

Pileus: 7.5 cm, broadly convex to flat, shallow central depression, furrowed margin, atropurpureous, pale purple at margins with inset dark purple ring, center purple with red/orange tones, dry, glabrous.

Context: 5 mm thick, white, odorless, mild, unchanging.

Lamellae: cream, adnate, moderately distant, some forked at base, entire.

Stipe: 6.5 x 1.2 cm, subequal, smooth, glabrous, roseous.

Spore Print: cream.

Spores: globose, spinulose, unable to determine 1-guttule.

Habitat: terrestrial, single, in mixed deciduous woods.
