I do see some green tones in the cap but my monitor shows the gills purplish at places from bruising. I do remember the purple. Thats why I photographed it. I have found Lactarius turpis (necator)… before but it had white latex. John

True colours?

On my screen I see a greenish and blackening species, reminding of Lactarius turpis (necator)…
