Lactarius quietus – oakbug milkcap

Synonyms: Agaricus quietus, Galorrheus quietus, Lactifluus quietus.

Common name: oakbug milkcap.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Lactarius quietus (commonly known as the oak milkcap, oakbug milkcap or southern milkcap) is a mushroom of the genus Lactarius. It is easily identified by its oily scent and the concentric bands on its cap. It is brown, and is probably named after its matt, "quiet" surface and colouration. It is found exclusively under oak trees in Europe, where it grows solitarily or in scattered groups in autumn months. In North America, the variety L. quietus var. incanus is fairly common in the same habitat. The mushroom's edibility is disputed.
