Lactarius vinaceorufescens

Lactarius vinaceorufescens


Common Name: Celandine Lactarius


Substrate: Wood 

Location: Conifer Forests

Spore Color: Pale

Gill Color:: Yellowish


The first things to notice are the pine habitat and the concentric rings on color on the cap. When you slice the gills it should exude a latex that turns yellow after it has been exposed to the air for a short amount of time. Finally, the stem should be smooth.


Lactarius chrysorrheus is very similar but it is found under oaks.
