Observation 161748: Lactarius Pers.

Notes:
Two Very large fungi growing together at edge of forest in open space. These two specimens are the only ones I was able to find in all of the area I worked this day. Both were mature but in good condition. The cut specimen I kept did not have the usual Mushroom odour that is so common here. Rather the smell was like “smelly old Boots”, and I wasn’t going to do a taste test thankyou. I took several photos to articulate their size as best I could. There was a noticeable
red ring on the underside of the pileus that was shown in both specimens at the start of the gill formation.
