When: 2009-09-29
(45.797683° -77.1303° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Terrestrial in small numbers in one small area in D4B, a pine-dominated zone that resembles Zone 19 a lot, ecologically speaking. “That” moss is absent, and with it Cantharellula, but Ampulloclitocybe clavipes, Rhodocollybia butyracea, and other species abundant in Zone 19 were abundant in D4B.

Recognized by sight: We don’t use the name L. vinaceorufescens down here anymore, I dunno how well this name applies in Ontario

this is L. vinaceorufescens.

I saw more today, but with the one I examined the latex came out white but became sulfur-yellow in a second or two. I managed to get a good photo with fresh and yellowed latex; observation forthcoming.
