Observation 161748: Lactarius Pers.

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.


Cut stipe and Pileus. Some signs of bruising on the stipe. (green tinge?)
