You're right as to genus -

Why not add it as an identification yourself? Not sure of species (surrounding trees might help), but you could stick to genus only.

surrounding trees

the woodland was largely oak trees, with a few scattered birch. every fungus I cam across was near an oak though. I know Russula are hard to identify! :)
