is a European species which as far as I know is not found in North America.

Very interesting.

Has anyone noticed as I have that there is a white Lactarius which mimics Russula brevipes var. acrior? I made a casual ID at a foray once and the collector came back to me with why does this Russula have latex? I had no answer except to say that it was a Lactarius close to Lactarius subvellereus.
