This mushroom is better known from New Mexico. It was named after Chuck Barrows like Boletus barrowsii. This mushroom is very similar and closely related to Lactarius deliciosus only paler in color. It is more pinkish cream colored rather than orange. Stains blue when broken or scraped. It is a bit smaller than L. deliciosus too.
