Observation 50942: Russula Pers.

When: 2010-08-12

Collection location: Blacksburg, Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mark Prosser (mark prosser)

No specimen available

Found along moist sandy stream bed next to Cantharellus minor, this in mixed conifer/ hardwood forest. Small in size, less than one inch in cap width and stem height. My only guess is a russula of some type. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks again. This is a small one, but a beautiful deep red cap with a nice pink stem form. Mark

You’re right on.

Definitely a Russula, and if you haven’t already been told, they are a nefariously difficult group to identify to species, especially the red ones, the damned red ones.
