When: 2011-08-26

Collection location: Millersylvania State Park, Thurston Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Henderson (Hendre17)

No specimen available

Found near campground entrance/hook up site entrance and pay station.

Fruiting beneath Douglas fir and Western Hemlock trees where many indian pipe(Monotropa uniflora) were photographed a few months ago. Russula brevipes are clearly the parasitized fungi in question due to crisp(mildly fishy odor) and bright white, dense flesh inside.

Temp: Low 70’s sunny- no rain since last week.
