Observation 48647: Russula brevipes Peck

When: 2010-07-14

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Possibly a Lactarius instead. I didn’t check for latex; it was too old, slimy, and slug-attacked for that to be conclusive anyway. However, all similar mushrooms I’ve found in these woods that were fresh enough have tested negative for latex.

It was in Zone 48 some distance from the fresh Monotropa uniflora that were pushing up out of the dirt.

Zone 48 is hardwood-dominated with a smattering of Balsam fir. Populus tremuloides, Betula papyrifera, and Acer sp. all are fairly abundant there with some occasional B. allegheniensis and, on the coniferous side, Abies balsamea, Pinus resinosa, P. strobus, and possibly infrequent P. banksiana and Picea sp. Any of these could therefore be the host.
