A few drops are visible in the second photo, if you view it full size.

These have orange latex. I’m not really here with any books, although I have quite a bit of stuff on the computer. I was out with the members of Société Mycologique de Genève, and they were doing most of the id work, I just follow along as I usually do… letting others do the heavy lifting so I can claim credit later…

very interesting, what color latex?
