Fungi: Basidiomycota: Agaricomycetes: Russulales: Russulaceae: Russula brevipes Peck

Russula brevipes – Short-stemmed Russula

Common name: Short-stemmed Russula.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Russula brevipes is a species of mushroom commonly known as the short-stemmed russula or the stubby brittlegill. It is widespread in North America, and was reported from Pakistan in 2006. The fungus grows in a mycorrhizal association with trees from several genera, including fir, spruce, Douglas-fir, and hemlock. Fruit bodies are white and large, with convex to funnel-shaped caps measuring 7–30 cm (3–12 in) wide set atop a thick stipe up to 8 cm (3 in) long. The gills on the cap underside are closely spaced and sometimes have a faint bluish tint. Spores are roughly spherical, and have a network-like surface dotted with warts.

Arabic: روسولا قصيرة الساق, Chinese: 短柄紅菇.
