Gills look different…

than what I’d expect with glaucescens. My idea of this species, and the very similar piperatus, is that the gills are packed together very tightly. Also, the staining seems pretty well spread out across the gills. The green staining on glaucescens is usually limited to where the latex collected; it’s actually the latex that stains green.

Joan, not nibbling/tasting means you miss a potentially useful piece of information.
