A milkcap with a wrinkled orange cap, growing in southern Europe and the mediterranean area. Previously, it has been confused with Lactifluus volemus, but it is more closely related to Lactifluus hygrophoroides (America), L. clarkeae (Australia) and African species such as Lactifluus rubiginosus, L. albocinctus, L. volemoides etc.
