''Russula cyanoxantha'', synonymous with R. xyanoxantha, commonly known as the charcoal burner, is a basidiomycete mushroom, distinguished from most other members of the ''Russula'' genus by the fact that its gills do not split, but are soft and flexible. It is one of the most common species of ''Russula'' in Europe.

It is an edible mushroom. It was designated "Mushroom of the Year" in 1997 by the German Association of Mycology.
