Found growing directly under canopy of a native Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) tree.
The white colored latex/milk/exudate which can be seen in the photographs dripping from the mushroom was “forced” by cutting across the gills with a knife.
Also visible are the white colored spores which have fallen from the gills and deposited in mass leaving a “spore print” on the Coast Live Oak leaves seen directly below the mushrooms.
The stems/stipes are visibly scrobiculate(spotted).
The gills are obviously attached to the stems.
The caps can be seen to be zonate(concentric colored bands/zones) & depressed in their centers.
Note: The white coloration seen on the Oak leaves below the mushrooms is not from the dripping white colored milk/latex. It is from the mushroom’s white colored spores which had fallen previous to the mushroom being cut open.
