Xiang-Hua & Pei-Gui Liu. Lactarius
chichuensis and L. hirtipes, two easily confused species,
Mycotaxon 84: 391-400. 2002.
ABSTRACT: Two species of the genus Lactarius described
from Yunnan, China,
L. chichuensis and L. hirtipes, are compared in this study
based on the critical examination of the holotypes and additional material.
They are very similar in the field but can be distinguished from each
other by the spores and the stipe cortex and pileus trama. The detailed
descriptions and illustrations of the two species are provided. Both taxa
belong to subgen. Russularia sect. Theiogali.
