Observation 221567: Lactarius Pers.
When: 2015-10-16
Collection location: Valcea, Romania [Click for map]
Who: cristtt5
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Habitat: beech forest

I know they are lactarius sp, and I guess they are not piperatus because I am hunting and eat piperatus every year those one gills are rare.

I was wondering if they are edible because although lactarius are listed inedible but I still eat them.

I suspect that all Lactarius are edible

if cooked. I think the only toxin in Lactarius is the acrid chemical, which seems to break down pretty easily with heat or pickling. I am not sure though.
