Yellow milking mushroom with video


I found this mushroom around September 20 2019 here is a video on it and some information on this mushroom :)

[Direct Link]


here is the information I posted in my description on you tube


Find in nature helped me narrow this mushroom down to Lactarius vinaceorufescens in this video in the comments ....we put our heads together to decide on this name for the mushroom I found here


Thanks for the help... here is find in natures channel


a link to my Lactarius playlist


Part A


Part B


Part C


Lactarius vinaceorufescens is the whole thing put together which is this video


This mushroom was found in mixed with Balsam, Pine and spruce with mixed Aspen, Birch, Maple, Beach and some very young Oak


Key features of this mushroom include cut gills will milk kinda the way milk weed does the family Lactarius does this at some form or another but this one the sap turns yellow within mins so this mushroom gets put into the category of chrysorrheus group ....


find in nature stated in the comments


"chrysorrheus and vinaceorufescens and they are separated also based on the treeā€¦ and if there is or not reddish-brown stains. In fact your mushroom seem to have those brownish stains, so maybe it would be better classified as L.vinaceorufescens. Are there coniferous also between those broad-leaved trees?"


and yes there is pine around and Lactarius vinaceorufescens associates with pine trees where the others associate with Oak trees this information was also found in mushroom expert in this link here


"This common pine lover from eastern North America has white milk that turns yellow after exposure to air, usually within a few seconds. The cap is cinnamon pink or darker red, and usually displays concentric zones of color, at least when young. The stem is smooth, without potholes, and the gills become spotted with pinkish to cinnamon discolorations. Lactarius chrysorrheus is very similar, but is associated with oaks. Additionally, it has paler colors, gills that do not discolor, and a more southerly range."


The other big thing to tell them apart was the red stains on the gills that my specimen has so as far as we can tell it is Lactarius vinaceorufescenes and it is poisonous but a beautiful mushroom :)
