Observation 177650: Lactarius Pers.

When: 2014-09-10

Collection location: Grand Lake Stream Region, Maine, USA [Click for map]

Who: Terri Clements/Donna Fulton (pinonbistro)

No specimen available

Cap up to 1.5 cm., red brown to orange brown to buff in age with umbo, minutely hairy under hand lens. Close buff decurrent gills. Brown stem with copious white mycelium at base. On mossy ground under hemlock, pine, birch and cedar.

No milk but specimens were dry. It does remind me of some of the small reddish umbonate Lactarius.
