Collection location: Eastern Long Island, New York, USA [Click for map]
Found under pine (I think white pine). Taste mild, latex white staining quickly to yellow, does not stain the gills. Cap maybe slightly viscid, uncertain, stipe not viscid.
The third photo here, with the close up on the gills, the bleeding on the right was about 30 sec. older than the bleeding on the left. I broke the gills in one spot and waiting awhile, then broke the gills in the next spot and quickly took the photo. So, this photo displays the white and stained yellow colors of the latex.
It seems that under pines in the east, if the latex stains yellow, it is this species. The species does seem fairly different than the L. xanthogalactus of the west here. The flesh is softer, and colors lighter with more pink-rose tones in the cap.
