fragile fleshed, red capped, white gilled Russula
on the ground under oaks
Central Park, late spring and summer
Russula emetica typically occurs in sphagnum moss areas - that is, wetland environments. This is a common dry land mushroom. It's also quite mild to the taste - not hot or peppery or acrid at all.
