Thanks, will try with KOH next time I spot one of these (and as soon as I get KOH…)

Under Fagus, with a sort of yellow veil visible in picture one. Red reaction on the base an cap marginn with KOH, try!

No, I did not take a spore print.

Spore print?

Have you tested the Spore print?

Surface is indeed mat. The stipe is fragile, but I do not know about the cap.

Russula risigallina?

Sorry, Russula risigallina I have forgotten. If the surface is more mat and not so shiny it could be risigallina. It has a very fragile fruit body.

I would go more for russula risigallina, which is more common and fit nicely the observation.

Perhaps Russula acetolens

If the spore print is egg-yolk yellow and the cap shiny yellow, it could be Russula acetolens, a rare species. Mature fruiting bodies smell like vinegar.
If the flesh turns black it’s quite surely R. claroflava. If the gills are not as yellow as it looks, it’s probably R. ochroleuca (with a white spore print).
