That sounds cool! I’ll be sure to look for that if I see this mushroom again.

Seems to belong

to the L.uvidus/vietus/trivialis/glutinipallens group (and its American relatives) if latex had changed to violet for the first and grayish for the others after a while; but since we don’t know that … :(

so many shrooms, so little time

In an imaginary world where our days are not numbered and motility does not decline with age, I would have given much attention to this colorful russaloid Lactarius. Sometime in the next 35 years or so, this mushroom show is going to be over. Few mushrooms are interesting enough to spore print, and still fewer are honored with microscopy. To date I have never put chemicals on a mushroom, unless you count salt and vinegar :)

This mushroom caught my eye because of its large size, viscid cap, and really weird pink-gray-green-blue color. That and I initially thought it was a Russula. The latex is a watery cream color. It’s essence captured in my camera, I moved on the the next interesting mushroom.

Exatly what color was the latex
