The latex

does not appear to be exuding from a damaged area. I have never seen a Lactarius exude latex when undamaged. In my opinion this photo shows a classic Hygrophorus.

If you are sure of that…

Don’t vote that it could be a Hygrophorus gliocyclus (does this have milk?). Besides this, your pictures show a viscid stem —→ Lactarius, which… I don’t know.

4th picture down shows milk on gills, that was my reason for guessing Lactarius.

Do I see

some milk on the gills? If so, it’s a lactarius. Besides, I’m not sure of being decurrent gills, it’s one more reason to believe it is a lactarius.
