  1. Very impressive how you identify not just the main species, but also the secondary ones. Posted 11 days ago
    1. Just part of my training to get as much information as possible about a species immediate environment. You should see the herbarium labels I print for vascular plants. This site is just a few feet from a conifer swamp but well above the high water line so it's moist but never soggy. Posted 11 days 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
