Observation 47790: Lactarius Pers.
When: 2010-06-28
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Lactarius, grayish brown with orangey tones over the disk, tacky viscid, some clustered. One that I brought back had a cap 10 cm in diameter, depressed center, and was orangey colored in grooves on the cap (the one viewed from the top in the photo). Gills cream-colored, milk first white, stays white on gills. Stem short, 4.5 cm, x 2 at top, taper down slightly. Spores brownish yellow, spiny, very broad eliptical, ~8 microns in longest dimension. I am awful with Lactarius despite getting Smith’s book, and would greatly appreciate the name for this species.

Lactarius isn’t one of my strong suits, was hoping Walt would ID it…
A guess would be Lactarius argillaceifolius var. argillaceifolius
