(Photo: © Michael Wood)

Russula cyanoxantha (Schaeff.) Fr.
Monogr. Hymenomyc. Suec. 2(2): 194. 1863.

Common Name: none

  • Habitat

    Scattered to gregarious in pine-fir forests; fruiting in fall at high elevation in the Sierra Nevada and Cascade Ranges. Common.

  • Edibility

    Edible Edible and choice.

  • Comments

    Russula cyanoxantha is recognized by a variegated cap with purple, lilac, vinaceous, and olive-green tones with splotches of pale yellow. A white stipe, white spores, mild taste, and white forking gills that have a greasy or waxy feel. Russula olivacea is a similar large species with variably colored caps ranging from olive to rosy purple, but has a reddish-blushed stipe, yellow spores, and non-forking gills.

    Russula cyanoxantha is a European name and the true R. cyanoxantha probably does not occur in California. More data/research is needed to clarify the situation and provide a new name.
