5° WHITE SPORE PRINT touches it. In spite of its rather disconcerting array of colors the fungus is, as its name implies, delicious. It is a fall plant and can be found scattered on the ground in forests, sometimes in considerable numbers. Figure 24. Lactarius subdulcis. Edible. Edible: LACTARIUS SUBDULCIS This is one of the smaller species of the genus (Figure 24 and Plate 46), but it amply makes up in numbers for its lack of size. The fruit body is a uniform reddish brown, the caps being from i to 2 inches wide and the stems from 2 to 2 1/2 inches long and somewhat slender, at least for a Lactarius.

Edible. Edible: LACTARIUS SUBDULCIS This is one of the smaller species of the genus (Figure 24 and Plate 46), but it amply makes up in numbers for its lack of size. The fruit body is a uniform reddish brown, the caps being from i to 2 inches wide and the stems from 2 to 2 1/2 inches long and somewhat slender, at least for a Lactarius. The top of the cap is flat or nearly so, with a small rounded bump just above the stem, and the surface has a slightly mealy appearance. The juice is white and often rather scanty, but it can usually be seen when the cap is bent back far enough to split the edges of the gills.

The cap of young specimens is convex, later becoming flat, and about i to i 1/2 inches across. The colors of both cap and gills are exceedingly variable, the most common being a light salmon, but Figure 17. Clitocybe laccata. Edible. those with a watery red cap and lilac or even purple gills are by no means rare. The color of the cap fades rapidly as it dries. The peculiar mealy texture of its surface and the characteristic waxy appearance of the gills serve more than color to identify the species.
