Candy caps and other assorted mushroom species

Russula rhodocephala (aka Russula sanguinea) at the Santa Cruz Fungus Fair. If you take a small nibble of this mushroom and spit it out, it’s super bitter and peppery

Shrimp Russula (Russula xerampelina). I found this climbing down a slope to admire a stream; I had been sitting there for minutes enjoying the scenery, turned around and this was waiting for me. This species appears similar to Russula sanguinea but R. xerampelina has a mild taste while R. sanguinea is bitter
