…now in the biggest specimen. Thanks for that tip. This group confuses me in the field, there seems to be many of these that fit a general profile, i.e. small reddish brown, creamy gills that turn reddish, scant watery latex….etc…lots of them.

based on Milk Mushrooms of NA L. oculatus doesn’t have an areolate cap and L. rimosellus grows in conifer woods

How do you distingish this….

…from say Lactarius oculatus or L. rimosellus by macro features?
