Lactarius vinosus is often considered as a variety of L. sanguifluus. Morphological (especially macroscopical characters and spore-ornamentation) and molecular arguments (based on ITS-sequencing) are given here to treat it as a separate species. Its relationship to closely related species of Lactarius section Deliciosi is discussed.
