Weeping Milk Cap

Lactifluus volemus


Caps were orange-brown, had inrolled margins, and slight depressions in the center of each cap. Stipes were similar in color to the caps, but a bit more pale. Gills were cream colored, close, and bruised brownish. The milk was white and copious.

Thanks Max and maplemoth! The color of the milk can help identify the species, so is an important feature that just so happens to make for a cool photo :)
