Rosy Russula - Russula rosea Russula with pinkish orange cap and a couple of yellowish spots near the center. The margin was slightly lined and was a darker pinkish color (like the center of the cap). Creamish colored gills and a white stipe that had a bit of a pink flush. The color in the side profile shot is innacurate &ndash; the flash made the cap look too red. The shot of the top of the cap is more accurate. <br />
<br />
Habitat: Growing on the ground under oak and beech in a mixed forest (oak, hemlock, pine, birch, beech, and maple.<br />

''Russula rosea'' , known as the rosy russula, is a north temperate, some consider it edible other inedible, commonly found mushroom of the large "brittlegill" genus ''Russula''.

The cap is convex when young, later flat, mostly bright cinnabar to carmine red; often with yellow spots and up to 10 cm in diameter.
The gills are pale straw-yellow, brittle, and occasionally with a red edge at the rim of the cap. The spores are pale-cream.
The stem is usually flushed carmine, but.. more
