as there is not such a thing as a free lunch, the question is who is going to pay for publication – the authors of the publication, or the consumer ?

I agree with you, Else.

Which is why I only voted “could be.”

What would be the best current source for these newly proposed Lactarius names? Online accessible, or behind a paywall?

there is a whole group of deliciosus-like species in western North America

this group needs thorough study before we can name any of them with certainty, imo.

including old familiar mushroom names! Alas, no more NA deliciosus.

no idea of what tree these were with, mixed forest, but these mature forms aren’t greening.
