The lactarius has a cap measuring between 5 and 12 cm, which is initially smooth and convex with a central depression and curved edges with abundant undulations. The cuticle is a pale carrot colour, cannot be separated, in concentric areas and with green dots. It has darker, wine-coloured gills, which also have green dots. The stem is short – 3-6 by 1-2 cm, cylindrical, hollow and the same colour as the cap. The flesh is a blood red colour, and is sweet tasting and has no smell.
