Description
 
 

Hintapink is a large, brightly colored mushroom. It is found on the ground in mixed woods and coniferous forests from early summer to early autumn. It grows on the roots of pines.

The cap is convex when young. As it ages it flattens and sometimes develops a shallow depression at the center. It is bright orangish-red, scarlet, or brownish-red, sometimes with pale areas. It is dull, slimy when wet, and 2 to 6 in diameter. The skin peels easily from the edge to on-half to three-quarters of the way to the center. The margin becomes marked with fine, vertical grooves and ridges with age.

The gills are creamy white at first, turning pale yellowish-orange (ochre) with age. They are fairly closely spaced and are narrowly attached to the stalk.

The stem is white and is sometimes partially or completely flushed with pink. It is smooth, 1¼ to 6 tall, and to 1¼ in diameter. It is sometimes slightly wider at the base.

The flesh is firm and white. The taste is mild. Like all Russulas, it is brittle, not fibrous, leading to the common name for this genus, Brittlegill.

The spores are pale cream in color.

This mushroom is edible but can be easily mistaken for Russula emetica, a poisonous mushroom.
