  1. I think we should be changing this to Lactarius deterrimus? I thought L. deliciosus was Europe only? Or has this changed? Posted 8 days ago
    1. Is it? I thought our variety was called Lactarius deliciosus var. deterrimus? Posted 8 days ago
      1. It was upgraded to its own species. https://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/4997
        I"m pretty sure the genetic data showed that it was distinct from European versions.

          1. Under Lactarius deterrimus, there are 2 European spottings - from Ferdy and Jivko. Should these be changed to L. deliciosus? Posted 8 days ago

''Lactarius deterrimus'', also known as false saffron milkcap, is a species of fungus in the family Russulaceae. The fungus produces medium-sized fruit bodies with orangish caps up to 12 cm wide that develop green spots in old age or if injured. Its orange-coloured latex stains maroon within 30 minutes. ''Lactarius deterrimus'' is a mycorrhizal fungus that associates with Norway spruce and bearberry. The species is distributed in Europe, but has also found in parts of Asia.
