Russula rubroalba appears to be more common in Southern Europe and is associated with broadleaved trees, particularly oaks. This species reminds one of Russula lepida, but the red colors are more saturated and the taste is mild without a hint of acridity or a medicinal taste. Russula rubroalba is a relative of Russula romelii and shares similar spore ornamentation.

Spores: 7-9 × 7-8µ sparse, thick ridges.
