Attached are pictures of a mushroom, crown around 18mm in diameter,
stem around 10 mm in diameter, height about 30 mm.
Could someone help me in identifying it for me please?
This mushroom is from the genus Lactarius …. cant confirm species from the photos sorry for it
With the clue given by …, I have gone through Lactarius fungi and find one of them close to the picture that I had uploaded.
This can be Lacterius turpis as it has been reported from Kerala before, but I can confirm it from the immature basidiocarp provided in the photos.
