  1. Looks like Lactarius to me! No latex?

    I also agree with morpheme that this looks similar to R. brevipes.

    1. I assumed Lactarius when I saw it too. But, no latex. Do you know why the cap is so inverted?? I see mushies like this occasionally. Posted one year ago

''Russula brevipes'' is a species of mushroom commonly known as the short-stemmed russula or the stubby brittlegill. It is widespread in North America, and was reported from Pakistan in 2006. The fungus grows in a mycorrhizal association with trees from several genera, including fir, spruce, Douglas-fir, and hemlock. Fruit bodies are white and large, with convex to funnel-shaped caps measuring 7–30 cm wide set atop a thick stipe up to 8 cm long. The gills on the cap underside are closely spaced.. more
