A bumper crop of milkies! These were growing under Eastern white pine, in an area with few trees of any other species.
Photos 1-3: two mature specimens. The one I uprooted (first and third photos) didn’t produce much latex. Photo 4: an older, drier one. Photos 5-6: a small immature one. This one bled copiously. Photos 7-11: A young one. Detail of the gills, and of the latex’s color change: white, slowly turning pale sulfurous yellow, a process that takes maybe five full minutes. Photo 12: wide-angle view showing a copious fruiting of these lactarii.
On the fifteenth, these were no longer in evidence. They may have been buried in leaves from a large maple not far away. The whole area was carpeted in them, where before the needles from the pines were the dominant form of duff.
The presence of the maple in the area means that the milkies might be associated with either maple or pine.
