It get bluish all over the gills but researching it led me to Lactarius deceptivus which McKnight reported having a brevipes like blue ring from Mich. and Florida. Which leads to the question, Why a blue apical ring? Bacteria?
Hope to see you next month.

Lactarius caeruleitinctus is supposed to develop that blue-green band, I think.

aren’t a bunch of these in the brevipes group…

Has anyone noticed as I have that there is a white Lactarius which mimics Russula brevipes var. acrior? I made a casual ID at a foray once and the collector came back to me with "Why does this Russula have latex? I had no answer except to say that it was a Lactarius close to Lactarius subvellereus.
