Comments
According to Dr. Harry Thiers, in his monograph of the genus Russula in California, this species was long misidentified as Russula emetica. The real Russula emetica grows in Sphagnum habitats, has a somewhat different pigmentation, and has not been found in California. In our area, Russula sanguinea is similar, but has a pink stipe and a pale yellow to yellow spore print.
