Doubled Up Mushrooms

Mushroom season 2009 is in full fruit right now in coastal California. Here's some recent finds under the theme "Doubled up."

Above, a beautiful young fly agaric (amanita muscaria) surrounded by some red (rosy?) russulas.

And here a pine spike (chroogomphus rutilus) is pushing up against an old slippery jack (suillus brevipes).

And finally a russula (can Feral Kevin confirm or correct this?) getting fresh with another slippery jack.

I've seen destroying angels leaning into edible agaricus mushrooms too -- that's a deady combo that has probably resulted in some melted livers in the past.

Looks like a Russula to me.
