It does remind me of L. volemus. The dark staining on the gills looks like it’s related to the latex. But I suspect that a mycorrhizal Australian species is likely different from what I find here in Pennsylvania, USA. Also, L. volemus generally exudes more latex than what I see here.

Inverted specimen show small beads of white latex.

Dave , I did notice this even on the small specimens but wasn’t confident enough to put a name to it. Thanks kk.
