First, the milk or latex: color and color change (in combination with context or flesh and without, on a white handkerchief and on the mushroom).
Secondly, the hosts (all Lactarii are mycorrhizal), which type of wood (boreal or thermophilous etc.).
Thirdly, and very important, taste and odor of the fungus (acrid or mild, milk with flesh and milk without attachment to flesh acrid or mild, odor fresh and odor later on).
And lastly spores.
Furthermore, is the cap viscid, dry, velvety, smooth and so on.
Are the gills distant or close? Is the stipe firm and rather hardfleshed or brittle, hollow and soft?
Size of sporocarp.

There are so many things that have to be heeded in determining fungi.

What info ?
