Observation 191146: Lactarius chelidonium var. chelidonioides (A.H. Sm.) Hesler & A.H. Sm.
When: 2014-11-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This species is relatively newly named. It is featured and discussed in “Texas Mushrooms, A Field Guide”.

This one gives pause, very unusual coloration in the field. Shape was generally that of a Russula. Large, about 6 inches across. I saw several of them in a shaded wooded area of primarily pines. I could see lines where milk had dripped, so probably Lactarius.

I didn’t try to collect one as they were very buggy. Although it appears that the spore is probably orange.
