Russula rosacea, 02 January 2023

Russula rosacea, the Blood red russula;
Volusia county, Florida (02 January 2023).

Consider this one tentatively identified. I’m pretty sure this is a Blood red russula, but I’m still fishing for some confirmation from the mycology corners of my social networks. Whatever it was, it was strikingly beautiful and stuck out like a big, wet, red sponge in the middle of the scrub. Fungi tends to be all or nothing when it comes to visual splash.
