Pretty medium sized mushroom. Suede-like orange cap with creamy yellowish gills that are attached to the stem. If the gills are disturbed, a white latex leaks out. The stem is soft orange. This mushroom grows on the ground.

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.
