Russula mushrooms in Pamber Forest, Hampshire
Russula mushrooms in Pamber Forest, Hampshire
Probably Russula xerampelina, which has a variable colour, is edible and has a fishy taste. However, it is readily confused with less edible russulas that induce vomiting, so one to avoid if not certain.

The large specimen is the colour of the (edible) Russula atropurpurea, but lacks the blackish centre. The fishy smell distinguishes xerampelina from the atropurpurea, which has a fruity smell.

To the left of the large mushroom is a small, young one.
