completely lacking in the odor. Although, as with these types of things, the intensity has varied.

Looks like this one has suffered from an identity crisis. See obs 24244 .

Habitat is coniferous forests and thickets of birch and poplar

according to http://www.mycoquebec.org/... mammosus / Lactaire de Hibbard&tag=Lactarius mammosus&gro=34. These were under balsam fir and birch.

Thanks again for your help.

with birch, but sometimes conifers.

Just did some research

in NA Milk Mushrooms and mycoquebec.org and this obs fits the descriptions well in every respect except for odor.

look reasonable for hibbardae (aka. L. mammosus). Odor is generally like coconut.

Thanks for the proposal, Dave,

I didn’t comment on odor in my notes and usually do if it is distinctive so I would say probably not.
