which never has a brown cap in my experience. Oddly, there are not many Russulas which have a brown cap, white stipe and white gills. Most brown-capped Russulas have yellowish or cream-colored gills. But I am not at all certain of my suggested Russula compacta, either.

note brown colour. does that help in identification? note in observation 17480 that there is what looks like a white cap, but again, not clear.
