Saffron milk-cap

Lactarius deliciosus


This solitary soft orange mushroom with gills extending down the stem. The white stem tapers toward the base.


In a creek bed in very sheltered light under native habitat foliage. The second spotting found 19 May 2012 in Croydon Vic. under pine trees.


These fungi are grown and collected for eating, as the name suggests.
