Observation 51320: Russula virescens (Schaeff.) Fr.

When: 2010-08-23

Collection location: Geneva, Switzerland [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found and id’ed by other at the SMG meeting.

At the meeting someone had put the name Russula cutefracta on this guy. I’d never hear of this name before, and looking in Index Fungorum I see that it is a synonym for Russula cyanoxantha, which I don’t think is right. Personally I think this looks like Russula virescens, not sure why they put a different name on it.
