does have gills forking all the way to near the cap margin. It also has gills that are not brittle. They are somewhat elastic.

R. variata is usually not so sulcate-striate, either, in my limited experience.

Not seeing the forking of the gills…

Kuo mentions this as the key feature for Russula variata.
