Description

A special record. This has not been collected since 1968 and only known from a few collections at the type locality Karamea. All we had until this photogrpah was a watercolour of the type. An unmistakable Lactarius.

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.
