Beechwood Sickener

Russula nobilis


Small red mushrooms with white stems. Some with white spots. The color was bright but the cap was not glossy. The spots were not raised. The gills were white.


Ozark forest. Both deciduous and coniferous forest.


I'm thinking Russula but need help with this little guy. I'm sorry I didn't get a better description but new to fungal features!

I'm not that good with fungi either. I've made the same mistake. :)

Thanks for your patience with a fungal noob such as I. Next time I will know what to look for!

I think you are right with Russula. Unfortunately you would need to see the gill structure and root structure for further ID.
