Observation 370641: Russulaceae Lotsy

Growing in mixed woods, although they appeared to be growing in a shallow depression on humus.
Caps up to 5.1 cm across and dry.
Stipes up to 6.5 X 0.48 cm and partially hollow.
They did have an odor…perhaps a hint of anise.
Spore print was creamy white and spores were amyloid.
Spores ~ 8.0-9.0 X 6.1-7.3 microns, broadly ellipsoid with warts and no significant lines.
While I initially did not consider Lactarius(or Russula), I did not see any evidence of a latex when I handled them or cut them up for drying.
The flesh was thin and not brittle.


Spores in Melzers @ 1000X
