very interesting one, I

very interesting one, I wonder if it might have been affected by frost or something as the top is rather bitty which is rather unusual for lactarius

There does seem to be milk if you put it on full image and zoom in the fungi does look frost damaged and quite grainy.

This one was found early

This one was found early morning after a heavy overnight frost.
It was the striking rust-red colour that caught my eye with this one.
The gills also had rusty spots on them and, yes, there is some evidence of milky discharge in among the gills.
Thanks for your input folks, much appreciated.
