Montoya, Leticia & Victor M. Bandala. Studies on Lactarius: a new combination and two new species from Mexico. Mycotaxon 85: 393 - 407. 2003.

ABSTRACT: Two undescribed Lactarius species in subgenus Piperites have been found in Mexico: L. cristulatus and L. atroviolaceus. Both are described here and compared with related species. In addition, after a type study of L. uvidus var. montanus from U.S., the new combination L. montanus is proposed. The particular set of characters with regard to basidiomes color and basidiospores (size, shape and ornamentation), supports its segregation from L. uvidus and allied taxa.

KEYWORDS: Russulales, type study, taxonomy
