taste it, it was acrid. only slightly hot if at all. I was in conifers in a park. There may have been hardwoods, but I was cruising pretty quick. There were more mushrooms in the winter there, than here in the summer.

No, it was just what I came up with using Milk Mushrooms of North America. Did you taste it? Habitat?

I think Alan called three different Lactarius L. luculentus this morning, if that’s what you mean by popping up…
