Who: mytake

No specimen available

This is a lactarius, it produces white milk.
However, I’m not sure which variety of lactarius this is.
Found on ground in groups, some were clustered together very close to dead log, oak and relatively young pine tree nearby.

White Milk – Yes

Yes, white milk (not watery) was produced on a few of the specimens when the gills were cut. The milk didn’t change color. Unfortunately, the photos don’t show the milk.

I enlarged the photos as much as possible, but I don’t see any latex.
