cap color / discoloration

Thanks for the help Daniel, as always. These remained white when cut. The caps on these start off orange, reddish-orange at the center. Russula claroflava has a yellow cap surface for the most part, I’ve read, so it couldn’t be that one.

Said to have odor of Galium boreale

but easily missed. Also known as bedstraw, a kind of herbaceous vine/weed of spring, collected by pioneers to make bedding from.

Flesh should discolor to gray when sliced.

No odor that I could detect, but my allergies were pretty bad that day. I almost wanted to say these were a Lactarius because of the umbo, but they exuded no latex.

Any herbaceous odor?

Maybe like bedstraw?
