Recognized by sight: I haven’t figured out how many different kinds there are of light, brownish Lactarii. This one has a nice odor similar to L. camphoratus / L. rubidus but it’s much larger than those.

White. Haven’t tasted them.

These were actually older specimens which seem to develop that discoloration. I don’t think it’s due to the milk staining like in L. uvidus, but I’ll watch for that next season. We got our first frost, so things have pretty much shutdown as far as I can tell.

latex color? or taste?

looks to be staining the tissues a dull purplish red, at any rate.
