Collection location: Sugar Pine Lake, Placer Co., California, USA [Click for map]
These were growing near pine and the conditions were fairly dry. No latex exuded and the taste was mild. There was no sign of any green colors and the mass color of the spores was white. The faintly zonate caps size were up to 10.8 cm across and the whitish stipe was short and stocky. The flesh was initially white when first cut but soon turned to a light yellow.
The spores were elliptical to subglobose and approx. 7.6 X 6.5 microns. They were warted and amyloid(at least the ridges/see photo).
Couldn’t find a match. Most keys require a latex color except perhaps for L. deliciosus, which I ruled out because of spore and gill color and lack of any orange or green color development.
