Description

This batch of fungi was found covered by long patches of grass. This species had widely been covering the ground behind the baseball field. It was on the edge of the exposure of the sun and outside of the line of trees. I would have missed the troop if I had not been paying close attention to the ground. The troop was hidden very well.

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.
