(Thuja occidentalis) in downeast Maine. The similar L. deliciosus has orange milk too but the FB bruises green.

Looks like what I’d call thyinos.

Although I think the name thyinos may have recently been lumped in with another name for an orange milky. I don’t have my NA Milky book with me.

I have found this type in damp habitat under a variety of conifers, not in my locale, but nearly every time I visit either Vermont or the Adirondack Region of NY.
