Observation 149075: Lactarius mammosus Fr.

When: 2013-10-13

Collection location: Lake John, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Although “hibbardae” is the species name used in the NA Milk Mushroom, a good case has been made here at MO for using the European name “mammosus.” As I understand it, the name hibbardae may have been applied under the assumption that NA material does not represent the same species as Euro material.

Variuos stages of growth. Coconut odor noted.

Sloping lake shore with cranberries and small spruce trees.
