H. luteovirens

I don’t believe this is a possibility. In part because I spend a great deal of time in the woods and have never come across any in Minnesota (not that they dont exist) and in larger part because it is clearly fully hypomitized unlike H. luteovirens. My best guess is that it is H. lactifluorum that has not turned orange. I found 5 like this and see many, many that have varying degrees of white left to them. Purely my hypothesis…
