The young Sickener fruitbodies shown above were found in spruce and pine woodland on the Isle of Bute, in Scotland, in September 2012. I carefully record all of the ridiculous features--like how far the cap cuticle peels, or whether the spores are "partially" or "completely" reticulate--to the best of my ability, trying to be objective. The Genus Armillaria [ Basidiomycota > Agaricales > Physalaciaceae. First described in 1774, the mushroom has a wide distribution in the Northern Hemisphere, where it grows on the ground in damp woodlands in a mycorrhizal association with conifers, especially pine. Celsa Group has selected Russula to supply a new rolling mill that will be installed in its Celsa France Boucau-Tarnos steelworks near the Bayonne area in Southern France. in a temperate oak savanna. In this review, we synthesize field and culture studies of the 15 N/ 14 N (expressed as δ 15 N) of autotrophic plants, mycoheterotrophic plants, parasitic plants, soil, and mycorrhizal fungi to assess the major controls of isotopic patterns. Very common and widespread in coniferous woodlands throughout Britain, Ireland and mainland Europe as well as in northern Africa and some Asian countries. Pigments extracted from twenty-six ‘representative’ Russula spp. An entertaining way to confirm a mushroom is a Russulais to throw it at something (a tree, the ground, a friend) and watch for its explosion into little pieces. The problem is, the color of the spore print in Russula (and in Lactarius, for that matter) can vary substantially. North American Flora 9: 201–236. The presence or absence of pileocystidia seems to be a fairly good identification character, but the pileocystidia are often extremely variable in their shapes and sizes, even within a single species. Retrieved from the MushroomExpert.Com Web site: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/russula.html. Notes on species of Russula. Shaffer, R. L. (1970). But while this kind of distinction works fairly rigidly in the case of Phallus, it goes totally limp when we get to something like Russula, where radical color differences are often manifested within a single collection of several specimens. Mycotaxon 69: 487–502. Shaffer, R. L. (1975). . Summary. Russula atrorubens Quél., Comptes Rendus de l´Association Française pour l´Avancement des Sciences 26 (2): 449 (1898) [MB#173811] Classification: Fungi , Dikarya , Basidiomycota , Agaricomycotina , Agaricomycetes , Russulales , Russulaceae , Russula These symptoms typically begin half an hour to three hours after ingestion of the mushroom, and usually subside spontaneously, or shortly after the ingested material has been expelled from the intestinal tract. On the one hand, you can see the writing on the wall and you are certainly enough of a scientist to agree that the ability to read the coded texts in DNA molecules will wind up being the best way for biology to discover how organisms evolved and how they are related to one another. (SH112629.05FU), and Tulasnella sp. A study of Julius Schaeffer's russulas. Mycologia 28: 253–267. This page was last edited on 8 November 2017, at 12:52. Now throw in the fact that variability like this is mentioned for most of the hundreds of russulas described. The "species" are defined on frequently ridiculous, variable characters; the literature goes to great lengths to cover this fact up with pseudoscientific jargon and long-winded descriptions; the use of a microscope often compounds, rather than alleviates, the frustrating milieu of variability and subjectivity; and we are at a point in time when DNA studies are likely to throw out most of the babies with the PCR-primed bathwater. Types of Russula spore ornamentation as designated by Dave Patterson in his Key to the Eastern U.S. Russulas.  The mushroom used to be widely eaten in eastern European countries and Russia after parboiling (which removes the toxins), and then salting or pickling. Miller, S. L., T. M. McClean, J. F. Walker & B. Buyck (2001). Species delimitation directly affects interpretation of evolution and biogeography. In response to hypoxic stress, many animals compensate for a reduced cellular O2 supply by suppressing total metabolism, thereby reducing O2 demand. . in which descriptions of the species then refer to the corresponding letter for spore print color. .

According to Rolf Singer's infrageneric classification of Russula, it is also the type of the section Russula. I could spend pages (don't worry; I won't) detailing the logic problems, the slipperiness of the syntax, the faulty parallels, and everything else that is wrong with this passage--but these things are probably immediately obvious to anyone whose life involves coming up for air, out of Russula Land once in a while. Foetentinae was assessed in a primary forest in the Western Ghâts (India) dominated by the ectomycorrhizal tree species Vateria indica and Dipterocarpus indicus. Russula is a cosmopolitan genus of basidiomycetes comprising hundreds of species with a mainly agaric habit of the basidiomes (Looney et al. lucandii Quél. Russula zvarae; Mga kasarigan. nov. from West Virginia, USA: a probable link between tropical and temperate Russula-groups. Decaying vegetable matter, a uniform and rather low temperature, a uniform supply of moisture, - these are the general requisites for Mushroom-growing. Throw in the fact that the amount of moisture present in the spore print will affect its color, the fact that spore print color changes over time and is sometimes studied on type specimens dried decades ago, and you have a big mess on your hands. & E. Horak (1999). , The white stem measures 4.5–10.5 cm (1.8–4.1 in) long by 0.7–2.4 cm (0.3–0.9 in) thick, and is roughly the same width throughout its length, although it can be a bit thicker near the base.
