Observation 7043: Russula simillima Peck

When: 2008-03-09

Collection location: Los Trancos Preserve, Palo Alto, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

White spores, and acrid taste. Not really red, but more salmon pink. The spores have smaller warts, lots of them, and a full reticulum. Also the color in the cap fades in age. Which matches the discription in the monograph of Russula’s of CA fairly well.

Need to check on the details of the cap cuticle.
