Observation 55049: Lactarius vinaceorufescens A.H. Sm.
When: 2010-10-07
(45.793891° -77.131834° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in D7C near red and white pine, paper birch, sugar maple, and balsam fir (aka the usual suspects in these woods).

And this scores the pentafecta: five Lactarius species in one day (L. thyinos in D1A; this, L. uvidus, and L. chelidonium in one small area in D7C; and L. tabidus just about everywhere). Also, all five species have appeared within a 500m radius, a circular area containing D6B and D7C (the former had L. tabidus today and L. thyinos a few weeks ago).

I wonder what makes this area such a milky hotspot?
