Observation 51902: Lactarius acerrimus Britzelm.

When: 2010-08-29

Collection location: Thoiry, France [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under oak, hornbeam, fir.

Didn’t know what to make of this, I first thought it was another L. intermedius, although it was under oaks, there was a fir close enough. But that wasn’t quite right, the stipe here is smooth, the cap smooth and non-zonate, and the gills are pink-buff. But the main feature that makes it is the randomness of the gills at the stipe, and splitting and waviness there makes the id.
