Observation 98396: Lactarius subvernalis var. cokeri (A.H. Sm. & Hesler) Hesler & A.H. Sm.
When: 2012-06-23
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These were found in the Big Sandy Creek Unit.
Caps were relatively small, up to 3.4 cm across.
The whitish latex eventually stained the gills orangy.
Also the flesh and stem surface stained pinkish.
Taste of flesh was slightly acrid.
The few spores I was able to look at under the microscope were in the right size range and the right ornamentation, but they seemed more broadly ellipsoid rather than globose or subglobose. However, the few other possibilities I could find also had globose spores, and were less of a fit in other ways.
