Observation 82835: Russula cantharellicola D. Arora & N.H. Nguyen

When: 2011-11-16

Collection location: El Sobrante, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Jean-Louis Excoffier (jle152)

No specimen available

Notes:
Growing under oak litter. This seems to be a large russula (chalky stalk, no milk), the gills are purple in older mushrooms, and have a tendancy to peel off as shown here.

I’ve seen it closely associated with chanterelles in three separate locations in the past few days. Is that common?

Recognized by sight: Yes, these Russula are very closely tied to Chanterelles, and they do stain reddish in age. The pattern was noted in Mushrooms Demystified – often the Russula will fruit weeks earlier than the chanterelle
