Thirty-nine Lactarii have been collected and identified with their possible ectomycorrhizal associates for Maine. Many of the Lactarius are new reports for Maine. Most of the ectomycorrhizal relationships reported from Maine are confirmed by the work of others. The edibility comments are those of the authors from the popular mushroom guides mentioned. Colored photos of thirty-nine Lactarii are included.
