(Fr.) Fr.




SEM photos


Russula heterophylla is closely related to R. vesca, from which it differs mainly in the cap colour; these two species are unique in the European Russula flora for the structure of their cap cuticle, which shows some long, tapering, thick-walled hairs at the centre of the cap.
