Indian references…

Are as common as finding ‘Squamanita paradoxa’.. The nearest references one might find will be from south of India or from Chinese province of Yunnan.. but I don’t know how relevant they will be for my collection… Which is even more a purpose for my documentation… sadly not going to be very specific till I manage to get a good microscope..

I agree

with Lactarius deliciosus group (species with orange/pink/even bluish colours and red latex). In mushroomexpert is stated that the american species are related, but not the same as the european. Yet, I beleive that american and european species are closer related to each other than indian and european ones.

I think you need references and checklists from a closer area. I have searched, but not been able to find anything useful from India, nothing but sites with recipes, cultivation and magic mushrooms..
