Collection location: Big Thicket, Tyler Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These were growing in the Upper portion of the Turkey Creek Unit.
Caps were up to 7.5 cm across and seemed to have a light bloom.
The gills had a light yellowish tint in the mature specimens.
No strong odor and the taste was mild.
Spore print was not thick but appeared white to slightly off-white.
Spores were ~ 6.9-8.8 X 6.0-8.0 microns, mostly subglobose(Q ave. + 1.07), rather high warts and some short ridges.
Went through a lot of Russula literature but didn’t find anything I feel comfortable enough to specify.
