could possibly be the same as Lactarius fennoscandicus, known from northern Europe, close to deterrimus, but with duller colours (also supposed to be growing with spruce):

very interesting

i think it was pine but could have been spruce not far away….also this was found way up in northern Canada so it could be a totally different sp perhaps

pine or spruce?

Looking at the foto again, I only see pine needles on the ground. If there were only pine and no spruce, the determination as L. deterrimus can not be upheld. Then it should be either L. quieticolor or another (american) species which is unknown to me

is very similar to yours macroscopically, but is a stouter fungus and the zonation on the cap is silvery shining. They could be seperated well by their different latex discolouration, but we don’t see that on the foto ;-)

are marks or small ditches on the stem, like water spots. I’m just uploading pictures of those Lactarii with orange milk and also of L. deliciosus where one fruitbody is lying and one can see those spots well. All species with orange latex have these marks – except L. deterrimus

thank you…………I would like to be able to tell the difference…….hmmm what does scrobiculae mean ?

Cap should be more bright orange and with silvery zonation, stem should show scrobiculae. This is L. deterrimus (or it might be L. quieticolor, but I don’t think so)
