Selection

Hi, Mark .. I was out on Keston Common with a group on Saturday and there were some good identifiers there, so I noted their IDs and read up on them when I got back. The only Lactarus ID I changed was L. rufus, which the group had as L. hepaticus even though the milk stayed white. That change to yellow is supposed to be very reliable, so I went for L. rufus. (We also saw L. blennius but I didn't get a photo.)
