Russula redolens has a green-gray pruinose convex cap that becomes flat then depressed in the center. Striate margin in age. Gills are white, crowded and some fork at the stipe apex. The stipe is white and tapers toward the base. Extremely fragile. Its most distinctive characteristic is its odor and taste, which reminds one of parsley or celery. The smell becomes more pronounced after drying and persists for years. This mushroom can be found in summer under hardwoods.
