No specimen available

A pinkish Russula in D6B.

D6 was a promising-looking zone, to judge by its tree mix (older quaking aspen and other species similar to the former Zones 11 and 12), when it was first surveyed this spring. It has thus far disappointed, unlike the similar-composition D9, but now … three fungi in one day in one small part of it. There was a drab, white, wrecked, unphotogenic Russula in D6D as well (Balsam fir dominated but there were birch and maple trees quite close by). I didn’t bother to photograph this. One of the ones that looks like an R. brevipes that (barely) survived a nuclear war or something.
