I have seen four different _L. “deliciosus”…

under Sitka Spruce you have Lactarius deliciosus var. olivaceosordidus (which this one probably is.)
There is also Lactarius deliciosus var. piceus which is slightly larger but the latex is bright orange but changes to purple after about five mins.

Under the Grand Fir there is an all orange Lactarius "deliciosus" that barely greens (this isn’t it…)

And with the Shore Pine Lactarius deliciosus var. areolatus is very common.
