I’ll see if I have a picture of the latex color change, or if I posted an Ob?

The orangish caps that go completely green in age, orange latex that goes to vinaceous and growth with spruce are distinctive. It’s the most common “deliciosus” on the far north coast.

exact characters which differentiate the two subsp?
