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
