Collection location: Long Ridge Open Space Preserve, La Honda, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Pgrunow

No specimen available

Mild with nutty taste, possibly extremely slowly acrid (weakly acrid aftertaste developed close to a min. later). Odd for a Russula, but not unpleasant.
Gill forking only at immediate base; pale yellowish-tan in age. Cap probably viscid at some point given debris levels. Spores seem to be creamy/pale yellow.
Peachy-tan cap with hints of pink and orange-red.
Scent faint and slightly sweet. Fairly standard for a Russula.
Stipe hollow
