Observation 109682: Lactarius sect. Deliciosi (Fr.) Redeuilh, Verbeken & Walleyn

When: 2012-09-14

Collection location: Seven Tubs Natural Area, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

I used to call this type “deliciosus”, but this name seems to apply more readily to types found in western NA. Green stains and greenish faded areas on the cap are common with this type I find here in eastern NA.

Mossy area near a stream, mainly hemlock and some birch.

Lactarius deterrimus is the species of green-staining orange-latex milky that occurs with spruce in NA. This collection was made in an area devoid of spruce. The mushrooms, however, look very similar to the ones seen in obs 111391.
