Golden Yellow Milk (Lactarius chrysorrheus)

The golden yellow mushroom (lat.Lactarius chrysorrheus) is a mushroom of the genus Millechnik (lat.Lactarius) of the russula family (lat.Russulaceae). Inedible.

External description At first, the cap is convex, then outstretched, and slightly depressed at the end, with strongly tucked edges. Matte smooth skin with dark spots. Smooth cylindrical stem, slightly thickened at the base. Not wide, dense plates, often bifurcated at the ends. Fragile white flesh, odorless and has a pungent taste. White spores with a reticulated amyloid ornament, similar to short ellipses, measuring 7-8.5 x 6-6.5 microns. The color of the cap changes from yellow-buffy with dark specks of various sizes and shapes. At first, the leg is solid, then whitish and hollow, gradually turning into pinkish-orange. Young mushrooms have white plates, mature ones – pink. When the fungus is cut, it secretes milky sap, which quickly becomes golden yellow in air. The mushroom seems sweet at first, but soon bitterness is felt and the taste becomes very pungent.

Edible Inedible.

Habitat Occurs in small groups or singly in deciduous forests, mainly under chestnuts and oaks, in mountains and hills.

Season Summer-autumn.

Similar species Strongly similar to the inedible milky Porne, characterized by white milk, bitter taste, apple-like pulp, and found only under larch trees.
