All four are Russula
Water droplets are normal an gills of R. Grata

For the first time in two months I have had rain for 3 hours

PS: There’s no way I would mistake Rusula and Lactarius

thank you

May be mixed collection, Eva.

The last photo shows clear droplets on the gills, which suggests Lactarius. The stipe appears strobiculate. At least to me.

This applies only to the 2 ower photos, not the first 2, Eva. I think it is a Russula as you have suggested. The gills have bruised or discolored with handling, and the stipe is mostly smooth.

Did you have recent rain at Turkey Point?
