This is a winter fruiting mushroom which I have observed in January, February and March in association with Tanoak and possibly douglas fir. always pure white gills and stipe with rosy red cap, 5-8 cm. It is very brittle, and breaks apart when you attempt to slice it open. I am confident it is a Russula and suspect sp. silvicola.
