Gills decurrent, narrow, close to crowded, dull orange, bleeding a dark red latex.

Stipe

Comments
Lactarius rubrilacteus closely resembles L. deliciosus. Both species have orange to orange-red zoned, shallowly, infundibulate caps and tend to develop green discolorations in age, but Lactarius rubrilacteus has a dark reddish rather than carrot-orange latex. In addition, Lactarius rubrilacteus is associated with Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) while L. deliciosus is found with pines (Pinus).
