Description: Original observation #33502 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: These were growing under Live Oak very near some Candy Caps (Lactarius rubidus). From the top they looked similar but underneath the gills are more crowded and decurrent. The stem is a little lighter in color, tapering and not as brittle. The spores were relatively small, approx. 4.1-5.1 X 3.8-4.3 microns, globose to subglobose, warted but no noticeable reticulations, and not amyloid. They did seem to be perhaps weakly dextrinoid (the micro photo was taken with the spores in Melzers). No strong odor or taste. Could not find any match after going through the new Bessette Lactarius book.
