Russula albidula is one of a few white russulas that can be found along trails or other disturbed areas in northeastern mixed or deciduous woods. It most often associates with oak. It has a plain white smooth cap that ages yellowish, white gills and stem. The spore print is pale cream to yellow. The taste is very acrid. In his book, Mushrooms Demystified, David Arora calls it the ‘Boring White Russula’.
