Bearded Milkcap Mushroom, Lactarius pubescens var. betulae, Walnut Creek, California

Edible, but you need to do it the old Russian way of salting them and letting them cure for about 90 days. A bite of the fresh cap is about the peppery-hottest thing I've ever tasted.

Description from Wikipedia

Lactarius is a genus of mushroom-producing fungi. The genus, collectively known commonly as milk-caps, are characterized by the fact that they exude a milky fluid ('latex') if cut or damaged. Like the genus Russula, with which they are grouped in the family Russulaceae, their flesh has a distinctive brittle consistency.
