A lot of Lactarius in this group show those characters. As I said in my comment below – the bright orange latex at first is a point against L. rubrilacteus (along with geography, and color of the gills.

Gills and latex

The gills are very bright (much brighter than _L. rubrilacteus), and the cross-section in the field shows bright orange milk (that apparently becomes wine-red later as in the last photo). L. rubrilacteus has wine-red latex from the start, and basically only occurs west of the Rockies (as far as we know right now).
