The Fungi World (127) : Russula turci by Mark Billiau.

The Fungi World (127) : Russula turci

It’s the first time I spotted a fungus growing so closely to the waterfront, with its feet nearly in the water.

The shot shows an old specimen of Russula turci, a fungus that grows mostly on clay soil.
It has a distinct smell of iodoform (a disinfectant that reminds of the typical ‘hospital air’).

For one reason or another, there exists no English name for this fungus.

Dutch name : Jodoformrussula
German name : Jodoform-Täubling
Latin name : Russula turci

…yearning for a boat to take it away to distant shores – a fungus with an outlandish, fanciful name and… an unquenchable a thirst for adventure! ; )) a great interesting find, mark – the closeness to water is remarkable indeed!! greetings, sabine.

Klasse Foto!

It's your magic I guess making all those fungi look real on the screen...:-))
Another fascinating one again..
Have a nice week

Einen Pilz so nah am Wasser habe ich auch noch nie gesehen. Ein Prachtexemplar, wunderbar die Aufnahme.

maybe waterlevel has rised suddenly Mark, that's pretty close to the edge......
anyway, a well placed pic of this toadstool with great details !!

Alfred Schultz, 10.10.2011 at 10:46h

It realy looks somewhat strange,
growing so close to the water edge.
But that makes it - once more - an
unusual and outstandig good picture.
Cheers - A.

Mi hai fatto immaginare perfettamente l'odore di questo fungo!
Bella e suggestiva ripresa!
Buona settimana,

These fungi shots as so good they should be in a reference book !


Fons van Swaal, 10.10.2011 at 11:24h

How big( tall ) is this Fungi.......??
What a beautiful shot Mark...

Die Bildqualität ist mal wieder großartig. So wirkt das schöne Motiv noch attraktiver.
Gruß Tina

Irbenika, 10.10.2011 at 13:03h


Yes, it is a very unusual place for a russula!
In Russian it is called "syroezhka" - this means that it can be eaten raw :-))
Marvellous photo!!


Werner R. Albert, 10.10.2011 at 14:18h

An amazing shot, Mark !
So well presented in best light and colours.
best wishes

Perry Blevins, 10.10.2011 at 14:25h

Well spotted Mark. A great sharpness and wonderful light. Was this near the swamp land? Thanks for the info also.

Wirkt gewaltig aus dieser Perspektive.
Klasse vom Bildaufbau, den Farben und der Schärfe. +++

It looks like its getting ready to jump in the water as it lifts its ruffled skirt over its head. Another interesting shot that makes you think. BW ~ Linda
