Russula with purplish cap 4.5cm across. Stipe 5cm tall. Gills & spore print white. Very pleasantly scented, though hard to describe - perhaps like a mix of cooked fruit & coconut?
Growing under trees on pond bank (though not growing in wet ground). Nearby trees: Alder, Weeping Willow, Wild Pear, Hawthorn.
