Observation 208564: Lactarius piperatus group
When: 2015-07-03

Notes: White lactarius species growing under Oaks and Sweet Gum.

Cap – White, depressed center, 2.5 inch diameter

Stem – 1.5 inch long, 1/2 inch wide

Gills – crowded slightly cream color, white in younger caps, easily shows latex on handling, cream color. When dried the latex appears gray and maybe with a hint of blue. I saw no green in the dried latex. Brown stains on the gills appear to be from insects.

Spores – maybe will have some photos. Did not make print.

UPDATE:

Went back today and got another specimen at the exact location to check taste and get a spore print.

SMELL: little to no smell
TASTE: burned my tongue, very hot

Spore Print: in progress
