Most likely L. piperatus.

Probably a Lactarius from the piperatus-group

Probably a Lactarius from the piperatus-group. The narrow, closely spaced and often forked lamellae look like L. piperatus or L. glaucescens. If the milk drys gray-green on the flesh over night it’s glaucescens otherwise it’s L. piperatus. If the cap surface is very shortly woolly it could be L. vellereus.

Unsure if the gills produce milk themselves. The flesh certainly certainly did produce a white, hot, immutable latex.

The last picture hints at the gills attachment.
