No notes of staining…

…but lack of notes doesn´t mean for sure that I remembered to try and that it was negative! I´m positive that I forgot to nibble on it, though.

Looks familiar..

It looks extremely similar to Russula sardonia (very acrid, grows with pine, and the gills become citric yellow on drying). I wonder if that is possible..?

staining?

Looks a little like Russula xerampelina, does it stain brown?
