on a river beach here near by. As in almost all our north rivers, we have Poplars on the margins, and this is not a exception. 2012 was a great year for Lactarius Vellereus, but these ones seem to be different in some aspects. These were forming arcs, were smaller, pink stains on gills and cap.

Maybe L. controversus, sure no L. pieratus

Certainly no L.pieratus (stem too short and Lamellae too distant) Is there a poplar or an aspen nearby? If so, it’s very likely that this is a L. controversus. It really looks like L. vellereus, but the lamellae have that pink tint you can see on the photo. The cap is also viscous, with indistinct, pink zones. If the cap is felty (pubescent) L. vellereus or the quite similar L. bertillonii is very likely.
