L. volemus is something completely different and unmistakable. Maybe it’s best to call it L. fulvissimus. I am yet in the process to discover what is the best name for those Lactarii within this group.

Never heard of ichoratus

so I had to look it up. According to IndexFungorum it has been used for both fulvissimus and volemus. This doesn’t look like any of them

Here we have another taxonomic issue.

There is a real mess around the names fulvissimus, ichoratus, subsericatus, britannicus and so on.
In L. ichoratus the cap surface is said to be smooth and there are two opinions whether it grows under conifers or deciduous trees. In L. britannicus the cap surface is felty. L. subsericatus (growing with beech?) seems to be a nomen dubium or confusum, and fulvissimus seems also to have a somewhat felty surface. Besides there is pseudofulvissimus with conifers.
But with all these names there are seemingly different interpretations.
