Collection location: John Chestnut Park, Palm Harbor, Florida, USA [Click for map]
Who: Violet (Mycomadam)
Based on reading several books, I’m not sure whether this is l. volemus or l. hygrophoroides. There may be both in my collection.
These were growing under tall southern white pine, in the needles and sandy soil underneath. Cap 1-3" across. Gills exuded a while milk upon breaking which turned grayish/lt. brown with time. Mushrooms and hands smelled of shellfish. Hands VERY difficult to clean afterwards…if you get the milk on them. The dark color sets in nails and fingerprints.
Very tasty when sauteed in a little butter or made in a casserole.
