Donna Mitchell is one of the rare amateur mycologists in the USA with a keen interest in Russula. As most other mycologists who like Russula in the eastern United States, she learned to identify many species from Ray Fatto. She is actively collecting in West Virginia and has discovered a new species in the Russula viscida group: Russula lentiginosa Buyck & Mitchell.
