This beautiful mushroom was found under mixed oak and pine trees in Central Georgia after a few days of steady rain. It had a purplish-pinkish-greenish cap, a solid white stem, and white gills. The spore print was white. The skin of the cap peeled away easily. (I know there is a better way to say that!)
I think it is a Russula variata, a "Variegated Brittlegill". What do you guys think? It was just lovely.  :loveeyes:

It's a Russula for sure, but it's hard to say which species.
To narrow its ID taste a piece, chew it and then spit it out. Some Russulas have mild taste while others are acrid.

You've got the genus right.

In general, Russulas cannot be identified to species without a microscope. There are a few distinctive species where it can be done, but not most of them.

Happy mushrooming!
