Observation 9995: Russula brevipes Peck

This is a robust collection observed at the Oregon Mycological Society’s 2002 Fall Mushroom Show, held at the World Forestry Center, Portland, Multnomah Co., OR. R. brevipes is a reportedly edible species (I’ve never tried it) that becomes much more edible when parasitized by Hypomyces lactifluorum (Lobster mushroom), especially in sandy conditions under Sitka spruce and Lodgepole pine on the Pacific coast. These specimens may have been picked near Timothy Lake, Clackamas Co., OR, as I found many extremely large ones that year in that area.
