Bohemia Ecological Preserve

Both Golden and Yellow-staining Milkcaps are extremely bitter or poisonous mushrooms in the Russula Family. The gills of these Milk Caps show drops of latex that were released when the gills were injured. The latex is white at first, and then turns yellow. Often the gills of Milk Caps run down the stem a little way. Milk Caps have a hollow stem that snaps like chalk.
