Beech Milkcap

Another one unpicked last night - a species I may have recorded before actually - Lactarius blennius, my first milkcap of the year at Cullaloe. I only recently fond out that the milkcaps were related to the Russulas, something which is obvious when you see what their spores look like! (they also share structural features not common with other fungi, but the spores are very obvious)
