In any case, a lot of fun trying to find out
That Russula turci seems a very good candidate. I did not know russulas could be so complicated.Good work!
You've been right with your doubts, arlanda - I checked it over and found that one matching quite better: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russula_tur...
Nah... you've been the one who narrowed it down to Russula - thanks again for that.
you must be right. Too difficult for me!
Russula xerampelina isn't it. Way too brown. The color on the photo shows pretty much the original color. The Sickener is too bright red and the velenovskyi is the only other red one (in Europe). I still believe it is the right one.Decoloration doesn't necessarily mean that color has to fade into white - it just means that color reduces itself in saturation.
russula xerampelina (crab brittlegill or shrimp mushroom) seems a good candidate. The identification key is that it smells to shell fish. The pictures in http://www.asturnatura.com/fotografia/se... are very similar
I think this is the right I saw this on google :) http://mycorance.free.fr/valchamp/champi...
Did you check the google-galleries, arlanda? There are a couple of examples that match perfectly.
I've seen in a guide that Russula velenovsky should decolorate in the center. In your second pic looks the opposite. These red russulas are very complicated. Maybe is a different one ;)check http://www.asturnatura.com/fotografia/se...Sorry it is in spanish
Thank you, Luc. The shot could have been a bit sharper (distortion due to the lighting) and the mushroom with less "gravel" on the hat, though...
oh yes I agree with arlanda , the shape looks more like Russula :)
Yesterday I buy a magazine photo. (Hunter Image) They talk about "macro-landscape" style, that is gaining popularity. This is a good example of macro-landscape . Your photo is very beautiful I add to my favorites now.:) congratulation
Haha, no, I did not...but I read the note about it, too :)
Just a question, did you try the taste? hahahaAccording to the guides unedible ones are very peppery but Russula velenovsky is edible!!
Thanks arlanda for the help - and I think you nearly hit it.I spotted it in beechwoods and this makes me quite sure that it's a Russula velenovskyi (Ziegelroter Täubling in German, which means in English "brick-red" - I checked the google-picture-directory and it appears to fit.
The best way to distinguish them is by their consistency: unlike other mushrooms, Russulas have a distinctive flesh consistency, an uncommon brittleness. It is difficult to distinguish different species; odour and taste play an important role.
