Observation 55049: Lactarius vinaceorufescens A.H. Sm.

When: 2010-10-07

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

45.793891° -77.131834°

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

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?
