Staining?

What color did the gills stain from the latex? I found when I saw this in France, that the gills would stain a kinda purple-black from the latex. The rest of the mushroom would bruise green, but the stain from the latex was different. The other common one was the L. deterrimus, and the gills there would stain dark green from the latex. Also I think L. salmonicolor was only under fir, and L. deterrimus should be seen under spruce. So, you seem to have the habitat correct?

yeah

L. salmoneus looks different. It would be interesting to sequence these.

Lactarius salmoneus

According to the original description, L. salmoneus has a white cap and stem, so I am not sure that this is the same species.

is Lactarius salmoneus Peck, holotype from Alabama. MO does not have this name in its database, but rather has L. salmoneus R Heim & Leclair (type from France) which has been synonymized with L. salmonicolor. It seems like L. salmonicolor may be restricted to Europe (http://www.mycologia.org/content/99/6/820.full).
