As I recall, there were some 7 professional mycologists present at the 2005 Mt. Pisgah Arboretum Mushroom Show. As I understood it, all specimens accepted for the show had to be confirmed by more than 1 mycologist. I’m just reporting what the mushroom was identified as.
The latex of mushroom bleed whites, and then stains yellow. There are a few mushrooms that do this, and in the west I think the only one you can find is L. xanthogalactus. I think that L. vinaceorufescens is only east coast, so I wonder how this one was id’ed as coming from the west coast here?
I love it when you find them in the wild with name tags!
Is there a reason here on why this one was called L. vinaceorufescens, perhaps over L. xanthogalactus? I thought L. xanthogalactus was the common west coast yellow staining Lactarius.
