Grey Milk-cap (Lactarius vietus)

The Grey Milkcap is a bit unusual as it likes to get its feet wet. Found on wet soils, usually in association with varieties of Sphagnum mosses in woodlan areas. A late summer and autumn species it is quite common where the right conditions exist. A distinct funnel shape that starts whitish in colour but truns a greyish-brown with age.

A vile, acrid taste; best left alone.
