Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

This was growing from rotting wood in Zone 45. That habitat had me thinking Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca but nope, brittle and exuded white latex. The latex did not change color for at least 2 minutes after exposure to the air.

in Scandinavia, I would have called it L. tabidus without much hesitation :-)

in Oregon, Washington or British Columbia I would have little qualm calling it L. olympianus. But I suspect that your area may be quite a ways away from the known fruiting area.
