Back to Russulas and Lactarius

Russula family includes the Milky Caps

Crispy, colorful and common

Russula have a brittle cap that easily crumbles and a stem that reminds you of a piece of chalk and is also quite brittle, breaking cleanly and easily.  A few Russula are edible, though none are well-know delectables. Most are often referred to as Just Another Russula (JAR.)
