No specimen available

GPS coordinates are representative for this neighbourhood, where mushrooms were abundant on lawns where pine and oak trees where never far (mycorrhizal species may be with either the hardwoods or conifers).

For this species, I only found about four small ones (<3cm wide pilei) within about a 1m2 area on a lawn. The milk was white, rapidly turning yellow. The stipe bruised darker but the gills didn’t seem to have any red staining/ bruising/ spots developing. Hence not Lactarius vinaceorufescens, but maybe they were just too young.
