Observation 11409: Lactarius chrysorrheus Fr.
When: 2008-09-16
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found under oaks, and some mixed hardwoods. Similar to L. vinaceorufescens, but these were found under oak, no pine in sight. The latex came out white, and very quickly turned yellow, much faster than other yellow staining species I’ve seen. In the closeup of the gills there are two patches of latex, left and right, I tried to separate these in time, such that one would be yellow and the other white. I couldn’t get the camera up fast enough to take the photo before it had turned yellow.

There seems to also be L. maculatipes under oak in the east, but that one has a scrobiculate stipe and is viscid on stipe and cap. These were only maybe slightly viscid on the cap, and not on the stipe, and the stipe is smooth.
