  1. Very impressive how you identify not just the main species, but also the secondary ones. Posted 2 months 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 2 months 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
