In this seminar I present structure, lifecycle, biogeography, taxonomy, ecology, and ecological role of the mushrooms of the genus Lactarius in Croatia. Attributes of fruiting bodies important for their determination are described. An overview of the most common Lactarius species is given, accompanied by the photographs of the abovementioned. Endangered species from the Red list of fungi in Croatia are, as well, singled out. Also, a review of the species used in nutrition is given. The genus Lactarius represents a common member of the class Agaricomycetes, phylum Basidiomycota. Its distinctive criterion (mark) being forming of the fruiting bodies with its unique, lactiferous hyphae, after which the entire genus acquired its common name milk-caps. There are 67 species of the genus recorded in Croatia, which represents about 60% of all known European species.
