When: 2010-08-11

Collection location: Fraser Experimental Forest, Grand Co., Colorado, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These are a pretty good match for L. rufus. However, I did not get any serious latex and I did not taste them. An odor was not strong enough for me to detect.
The spore size was in the right range, ~ 7.5-10.0 X 7.0-7.9 microns.
