Lactarius hibbardae 4847

Lactarius hibbardae has a dry scurfy cap, is pinkish brown to pinkish grey, lightly zoned and has an inrolled margin which ultimately will fully open and become wavy.  The cap may have a central depression. Cream to pink-brown close, narrow gills are crowded. Latex white and plentiful, but becomes watery with maturity. Both the flesh and latex taste slowly acrid. Smell: SWEET, becoming similar to COCONUT or reminiscent of anise as it dries. Can be found in mixed woods with conifers and hardwoods - frequently in moss. Fruits between July and October. Edibility has not been determined.
