Russula Mushroom

Russula. aff. rosacea


3cm on the long side. Pale reddish cap with white gills and very pale pink stem. No noticeable scent among the humus. Velvety to touch


Among the roots of a red gum, very old and well-established tree in remnant forest, pea gravel and denuded soils, Casuarina and red gum, Scribbly Gum


This is the only one I can find on that entire Dog Scat Ridge (polite version of my name for the place) so I have not disturbed it in the hope it will propagate and then I can pick one for a spore print. Russula identification from gully.moy
