LACTARIUS deterrimus looks like the European Lactarius deliciosus, but TURNS GREENER overall. Stipe has white ring-like mark at apex. There are NO CIRCULAR PITS on stem. Flesh turns darker orange-red on exposure. It can be found under spruce and other conifers in mountainous regions. Taste is PEPPERY, and not comparable to the European Lactarius deliciosus.
