AbstractThree species of Lactarius from Mexico were studied: L. deceptivus, L. luteolus and L. rimosellus. The latter two concern new records from western Mexico and from the Gulf of Mexico region, respectively, and the former was found on new localities. A study of their respective type collections and those of L. tomentosomarginatus and L. echinatus was made in order to support the identity of Mexican specimens. Based on a morphological study we propose reducing L. tomentosomarginatus to synonymy of L. deceptivus and agree with other authors that L. echinatus is conspecific with L. luteolus. Descriptions and illustrations are given of the three Mexican records.
