Abstract

The milkcap mushroom (Lactarius hauroko ined.) is produced by a fungus that grows on the roots of southern beech (Nothofagus) trees. The mushroom is distinctive because it produces a milky latex on the gills and cap when damaged. The fungus benefits trees growth by enhancing phosphate nutrition.
