Mushroom ID request

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I found a bunch of these mushrooms scattered around a slight slope growing out from under fallen oak leaves. I live in Orange County and I am curious if they are edible. The stems snap fairly easily and secrete a milky substance. Let me know what you guys think!

Thanks,

christian

Possible a species of Agrocybe, or also possibly a species of Leratiomyces. Spore print color? 

I recommend that you do not eat these mushrooms.

I think that Dave W missed the point about excreting a milky substance.  These are probably Lactarius mushrooms, but I'm not at all familiar with eastern species.

Sure did moss that point about the liquid. My attention was captured by what appeared to be  dark ring zone on the upper part of the stalk. A species of Lactarius. What color was the liquid when yo first noticed it. Did the liquid change color after a few minutes? 

Vitog, I think you missed that the collection comes from CA 🙂

Any notable odor?
