Observation 57637: Lactarius vellereus (Fr.) Fr.

When: 2010-10-02

Collection location: Southern Bohemia, Czech Republic [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under spruce, oak and beech.

This one was mostly under spruce. Actually I had this marked down as Russula brevipes, and it stayed that way until I edited the photos, and I noticed the white latex in some of the gills. This one really, really looks and feels like R. brevipes, but isn’t. I’m not completely sure of the id here… I haven’t seen these before.

Lactarius vellereus looks like a good idea

If it had been a Russula, you should probably have named it Russula delica, or chloroides if it had greenish gills.
