Russula flavida (1 Photo and Description)

Russula flavida1010069

This beautiful mushroom is fairly common under hardwoods in eastern North America. Its dry CAP & STEM are bright YELLOW, and the cap margin is only faintly lined, if it is lined at all. Neither the bruised stem nor the sliced flesh turns grayish, and the taste is mild. Most other bright yellow species of Russula differ on one or more of these features. Edible.
