Description

The whole cap is rosy red in colour, the texture smooth. Under the sun, the colour is more vivid and gives a stronger shade of crimson. The cap is shaped convex like a classic common button mushroom, and the gills are white, like pale cream and concisely spaced. The stem is also pale and relatively thick; the base is slightly clavate. The diameter is about 5 centimetre, whilst the stem is about 2 to 3 centimetre tall and it’s thickness around the size of a thumb print. After maturing, the cap becomes faded in colour (somewhat orange and pink), with the exterior having rounded bumps. The mushroom gets slightly sticky after raining, and the cap surface colour fades even more. The centre becomes depressed and overall flatter, hence why it appears flatter.

Description from Wikipedia

The Russulaceae are a family of fungi in the order Russulales. According to a 2008 estimate, the family contains 1243 species. Its species typically have fruit bodies with friable, chalk-like stalks, that break with a distinct crack, somewhat like a carrot but with porous flesh (see below). Microscopically, the cells are not all long thin hyphae, which would provide strength and more fibrous appearance when broken. Instead, the flesh contains also many large spherical cells ("sphaerocysts"),...
