First Lactarius of year

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

First Lactarius of year

Post by adampembs » Tue Jun 13, 2017 7:36 pm

Can't decide if it's Lactarius blennius or L. fluens
No white margin
Cap only slightly sticky
No distinct smell
Under oak and beech. Milk taste mild for a long time then acrid, no noticeable change in colour on drying.
I suppose I should check for the special hyphae in the ixocutis but opinions welcome.
