as there is not such a thing as a free lunch, the question is who is going to pay for publication – the authors of the publication, or the consumer ?

I agree with you, Else.

Which is why I only voted “could be.”

What would be the best current source for these newly proposed Lactarius names? Online accessible, or behind a paywall?

there is a whole group of deliciosus-like species in western North America

this group needs thorough study before we can name any of them with certainty, imo.

nothing sacred …

including old familiar mushroom names! Alas, no more NA deliciosus.

no idea of what tree these were with, mixed forest, but these mature forms aren’t greening.
