Yellow golden. PS: This one is a Russula, that’s a certainty.

defines ochre as “yellow-golden or yellow-brown…” Which would you define this as deteragenie? If yellow-golden, then must be Russula. If yellow-brown, then Phylloporus likely, and even probable.

Spore color is ochre

Possibly integra, yes

but maybe easier to get an proper ID if you try Photoshop or some other program to make the colours more accurate? I know that indoor light make the pictures too yellow, but this is extreme :-)

The quality of the picture is not good, owing to the interior yelloyish lights. This one is certainly a Russula. It could be Russula integra or something close to it.

Russula a strong possibility as Gerhard has suggested.

Resembles Phylloporus rhodoxanthus, or Gilled Bolete. If the later, should have some staining on the gills. Arora suggests stains of green or blue, but also states it sometimes doesn’t bruise color at all. A close-up of the gills might help. If Phylloporus, should have some cross-hatching, or even rudimentary pores. Otherwise, Russula is as good a guess as any.
