Collection location: Goose Island County Park, La Crosse Co., Wisconsin, USA [Click for map]
Who: Tom Volk (TomVolk)
Under oak, on the fllod plain of the Mississippi River in Wisconsin.
Does not seem to fit exactly. the color of the gills does not match pictures. Could it be Lactarius zonarius? or something else? The stem is also very scobilculate.

Thanks Debbiw. I forgot the cap pic. :)
as described in the new “Milk Mushrooms of North America” book:
spore size and partial reticulation fits.
gill color fits (“lite buff at first, becoming darker and sordid ochraceous w/age, sometimes staining pinkish-lilac”)
scrobiculate stipe fits.
white latex that only sometimes changes color.
taste acrid (in f. glaber “taste very strongly burning acrid”…get student to taste! ;)
occurs with oak.
whether cap is glabrous (f. glaber) or matted fibrillose (f. psammicola) will get you to the subspecies, but only psammicola shows partial reticulation.
Lactarius zonarius does not have a scrobiculate stipe, according to the Bessettes.
