Lactarius maculatipes, the "Spotted Foot Lactarius”, has a glabrous, cream cap with alternating yellowish zones and occasional yellowish pock marks on the cap, becoming ochraceous orange in the center as the fruiting body matures. The white latex is acrid, and slowly stains the flesh and gills yellowish to ochraceous. The pinkish-buff gills are slightly decurrent. The stem is scrobiculate, meaning it is dotted with several depressed yellow-spotted ‘holes'. Lactarius maculatipes has no distinctive odor and can be found, often in groups, in deciduous woods under oaks. Inedible.
