Observation 22683: Lactarius deliciosus (L.) Gray

I found a group of these growing in open grassland near some Pine trees. There were probably twenty in the group.

and since I found it in NSW too for me there is no doubt about it. It is one of the most common introduced species to Australia along with Amanita muscaria and Lactarius gerardii. I even found Paxillus involutus there in the middle of Katoomba with planted birch.

This looks like the real thing (not like the californian ones..)
