Observation 9089: Lactarius torminosus group

Displayed at the 2003 Oregon Mycological Society Fall Mushroom Show, held at the World Forestry Center, Portland, OR. Specimens with OMS tags have herbarium number.


Name tag appears to say L. torminosus; quick reference to Mushrooms of Northwest North America says L. tomenosus. I’m not positive which spelling/species is correct. But I have found this fungus several times and am comfortable with identifying it.
