In the series “Die Pilze Mitteleuropas,” band III. Around 750 worldwide species of ectomycorrhizal mushrooms compose the genus Russula. They are typically common, fairly large, and brightly colored – making them one of the most recognizable genera among mycologists and mushroom collectors. Their distinguishing characteristics include usually brightly coloured caps, a white to dark yellow spore print, brittle, attached gills, an absence of latex, and absence of partial veil or volva tissue on the stem (from Wiki). This book is from the private research collection of University of Michigan mycologist Alexander H. Smith with his signature on the front board and on the front endpaper.
