Observation 107184: Lactarius volemus var. flavus Hesler & A.H. Sm.
When: 2012-08-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I was thinking of proposing “L. volemus var. flavus”, but that species appears to have a range that ends well to the south of the collection site.

Plenty of sticky white latex that stained brown.

I found plenty of the typical orange/brown volemus along this same trail. I posted these because I thought it may generate this discussion!

I find this one in CT Dave….

….just another example, I’d say, of “limits yet to be established”….

I thought, “cool, it’s that yellow volemus variety.” But the NA milky book lists the northern most distribution for var. flavus as South Carolina.
