Observation 211347: Lactarius Pers.
When: 2015-07-24
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Only one was found, hopefully others will be found another time as I can’t get a fit to species.

Habitat – in grassy sandy soil next to pond.

Smell -none
Taste – latex, flesh – none

Latex – clear to cream colored. A small spot (at about 2 minutes from the cap breaking) can be seen in the photo and is a little darker ivory. The brown on the edge of the cap was in place due to some damage of the cap – perhaps a mouse bite. The resulting color is light reddish brown.

Cap – 2 cm, flesh thin, flesh translucent, ivory, edged ruffled due to the primary gill spitting at the edge. Texture is wrinkled, could be due to the hot, dry weather.

Gills – ivory like cap, short gills of varying length, subdistant, decurrent

Stalk – 2 cm – ivory at top, tan at base, narrowing toward the bottom.

Spore Print – scant – light

Spore Size TBD
No Chemical Tests made-

Microfeatures: spores warted
Gill – spore bearing surface have many cystididia, “utriform”, 23 microns long.
