Observation 14248: Lactarius Pers.

When: 2008-11-14

Collection location: Larch Mountain, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Keys out to L. fallax in Aurora, but I don’t believe this is dark enough. Nor is the stipe appropriately dark-colored for L. fallax. There is a velvety appearance to the cap, slightly umbonate, small amounts of white latex near the stipe and from the stipe when broken.

In the east under conifers we have L. oculatus which looks similar to yours, also L. subdulcis with Beech, which may or may not be the same as the European subdulcis
And the very similar L. nitidus (=L. hepaticus_?) All this being said I don’t know if any of these occur in the west.
