The reddish brown staining is not unique to pectinatoides.

Several species in that Section can bruise reddish brown at the base of the stipe. I spent some time in the recent past trying to figure out what is what in this area and the only definitive thing emerging in the R. pectinatoides concept was that the spores had some connectives, up to a broken reticulation, instead of isolated warts. I do not have any literature with me, as I am in Bulgaria right now, waiting to see some Euro stuff, but that’s what I have in memory.

Im not sure what the differences are, it seems a good match with http://www.mushroomexpert.com/russula_pectinatoides.html

What is your concept behind R.pectinatoides?

In Europe this name is obsolete – the mushroom named so before is now called R. praetervisa and its most striking feature is the reddening in the base of the stipe.
