Lactarius piperatus – peppery milkcap

Synonyms: Agaricus lactifluus, Agaricus piperatus, Galorrheus piperatus, Lactifluus piperatus.

Common names: peppery milkcap, Peppery White Milk Cap, Peppery Milky.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Lactifluus piperatus (synonym Lactarius piperatus), commonly known as the Blancaccio, is a semi-edible basidiomycete fungus of the genus Lactifluus. Despite being edible, it is not recommended by some because of its poor taste, though can be used as seasoning when dried. The fruiting body is a creamy-white mushroom which is funnel-shaped when mature, with exceptionally crowded gills. It bleeds a whitish peppery-tasting milk when cut. Widely distributed across Europe and eastern North America, Lactifluus piperatus has been accidentally introduced to Australia. Mycorrhizal, it forms a symbiotic relationship with various species of deciduous tree, including beech, and hazel, and fruiting bodies are found on the forest floor in deciduous woodland.
