Orange Milkcap

Lactarius thyinos


Lovely orange milkcap with orange milk (or latex) and a white, spongy, hollow stipe or stem. It did not bruise green, which rules out Lactarius deliciosus var. deterrimus, which also has orange milk.


Mixed forest with lots of white pine and some hardwoods like oaks and birches

No species ID suggestions
