photo 2 and 5. Not questioning milk.

Arcangeliella also has milk.

Close inspection of young cap should show that fungus is sequestrate: the spores are not liberated into the air. Thus the fungus relies on another means of dispersal, probably animal mycophagy.

looks like an Arcangeliella. It too would bleed like a Lactarius. Close examination should prove it is something else, though. Would like to see more of these. They are often covered by leaves or light humus. One species of Arcangeliella has a maple-syrup odor to it. Another smells like camphor.
