I cannot understand how you can give an identification of Russula rosea when there is virtually no details about this fungi.I would have thought that as you are knowledgeable on fungi by the badge you have that you would also know this. The genus russula is known for its difficulty in identifying and I would have thought was not possible by photo alone.I was always under the impression you needed habitat details tree,soil type smell,taste chemical tests and microscopic examination of the spores under a microscope.I know you have put it as likely but it is as likely to be many others too so I would think genus only was the better of the two identification's
