Stipe 7-14 cm tall, 2-5 cm thick, stout, stuffed, more or less equal; surface subviscid to dry, cream, irregularly pale-buff in age; flesh white unchanging; veil absent.

Comments
Large size and drab coloration characterize Lactarius argillaceifolius var. megacarpus. Lactarius pallescens is similar though usually paler colored, smaller, with a latex that stains gill tissue lilac, not grey-brown. The largest of our local milky caps, Lactarius argillaceifolius var. megacarpus can be common in some years and rare in others.
