When: 2008-07-26

Collection location: Pink Beds Trail, Pisgah Forest, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Viess (amanitarita)

No specimen available

Part of Methven’s Lactarius class for the AMC; The “real” fragilis is NBD; hardly merits the name candy cap! Fragrance almost non-existant, cap not nubbly like our Western version rubidus.
On this species group, at least, West is Best!
