When: 2010-01-07

Seen at: Santa Cruz, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Alan Rockefeller (Alan Rockefeller)

No specimen available

These are similar to Lactarius alnicola, but they don’t have a zonate cap or a scrobiculate stem.

It tastes very acrid after about 6 seconds.

The latex is white and unchanging.

What was the habitat here? I would agree these aren’t L. alnicola. The cap surface isn’t fuzzy either, so that knocks out a bunch of stuff also. Was the colors about right here, they look fairly brown, not really golder yellow, or orange.

ID help please
