Undistinctive Smell

I looked at my notes. I have nothing written about smell. I remember smelling it and the result must have been nothing significant. I plan to go on a mushroom walk in about 2 weeks with an expert. One of the things I hope to learn is a better idea of what smells mean what.

Lack of milk

doesn’t rule out Lactarius. I don’t know whether this is Lactarius or Russula but older Lactarius don’t always give milk. At this point it looks like it could be either. Any distinctive odor or taste?
