This unknown subspecies of Lactarius deliciosus was found growing in the Olympic National Forest in Washington state about 100 meters from Lake Ozette on a cold mid-November afternoon. During a short hike through the woods I encountered at least two dozen of them. The prominent feature is the green "stains" on the cap.
