Taste or spore color?

Am I correct in assuming it was acrid and the spore print was white (per R. cremoricolor)?

Not Russula cremricola

As Adolf points out the colors are wrong. However, that also means it isn’t Russula silvicola since they are considered synonyms.

Is it really Russula cremoricolor?

We collected what we think is Russula cremoricolor on the same collecting trip (cf. MO # 85301) and that one did not have any “shades of brown, red, and/or purple” (Thiers, Agaricales … of California) as this one has (MO # 85885).
See also our earlier posting of Russula cremoricolor from this locality (MO # 69671) that looks more like our MO # 85301. We are afraid that the name Russula cremoricolor does not fit to this (MO # 85885) observation, but “the Consensus is always right!”
