These were found on the ground under ponderosa pines.

This is one of the most common mushrooms attacked by the mushroom parasite Hypomyces lactifluorum (Lobster Mushroom). Russula brevipes is edible but not a very good one unless it becomes a Lobster.
Russula brevipes var. acrior is acrid and can be blueish on the stem.
