Observation 77584: Russula Pers.

When: 2011-09-29

Collection location: Dalton, Georgia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Stephen (Ιερονυμοσ)

No specimen available

Notes:
Habitat:
Growing at the same time as Lactarius, so I presume it’s mycorrizal. Within 200 ft are several species of oak, tulip poplar, dogwood, several other hard/soft deciduous woods and a couple species of pine.

Gills:
Attached, adnate, white smooth margin. Some gills are forked at a rate of roughly 1/20

Stem:
This mushroom was rather diffictul to bisect as it wanted to give way and break rather than cut.

Cap: starting somewhat ovate, going to convex, then to flat, and depressed.

Spore print color:
I am assuming to be white.

Bruising:
none.

Other information:
Cheilocystidia and pleurocystidia present. Spores are globoular and densely warted. Basidia appear to be four pronged.

All micrographs are at 400X.

It appears to be Georgian-red clay, which is everywhere around here. You mean the Russula in the bottom right corner of image 171462, right?

What is the red on that one mushroom?
