Observation 20781: Lactarius Pers.
When: 2009-04-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This bright yellow fungi really caught my eye . It was found growing at the base of a live rough stringy bark eucalypt. I was sure that when I smelt it it would smell like mustard or curry.
It really did look like it was made of mustard\curry. There was no aroma. The cap and stipe were both dry to touch. The cap was about 6cm across and the stipe was only 3cm. The stipe felt cold but not wet.

I didn’t suggest Lactarius, just thought that it reminded of one.
But it might do as a suggestion, until a better proposal comes by :-)

Lactarius

Irene, I think you could be right. The specimen may have been fully mature and starting to dry out. Have updated.

Marbled texture, doesn’t look fibrous, hollow stem. It reminds a lot of a Lactarius (with or without milk).
