Are the gills flexible & greasy, or brittle?

it would seem to fit Russula lilacea better than anything else, provided there were deciduous trees in the vicinity. It is supposedly common at low elevations around Puget Sound.

spores were white, just plain white, and the taste was not spicy, very mild, not distinctive.

would work for R. parazurea, but the rosy flush in the stipe argues against it. Spore color? Deposit for parazurea would be cream-yellow. Taste? Always helpful to taste Russulas.

Reminds me of
