Southern Highlands awash with Lactarius deliciosus

At the end of April you'd expect to see the fungi season on the way out, especially given the flush of fungi in March. But Lactarius delicious in huge numbers were under pines beside roads, in forests, in suburban lawns on April 30 2017 all through the souther highlands of NSW. More than we could pick was in the pine forests off King George Road, near Wingelo.

Also out were fresh Suillus luteus, older and often dessicated Suillus granulatus, and several Agaricus Augustus.
