Description: Original observation #178011 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: > R. brevipes, L. deceptivus, L. piperatus are common enough in the NJ Pinelands, so eventually you stop paying close attention to them and start assigning names without picking them up and studying them. > This one had neither a noticeably enrolled margin of L. deceptivus nor the super-crowded gills of L. piperatus_. > KOH stained flesh pale yellow (_L. deceptivus should be negative). Iron (II) sulfate produced a brownish-pink reaction, consistent with L. deceptivus. > Both the milk and flesh are hot/acrid, but not as one would expect of L. deceptivus.
