Description: Original observation #177687 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: In mixed woods that include balsam fir and birch. This specimen is growing about 2 feet up on a dead well rotted conifer stump. I know Lactarius are mycorrhizal so if the ID is right then the wood is just a substrate for the mycelia to pass through? Flesh is white and firm. Odor is pungent. Any ideas would be appreciated.
