in your proposal’s defense, that cap and stipe context look awfully sphaerocyst-y.

suse: Lactarius is a possibility, for the reasons Richard has stated. what we oughtn’t do is call it that without more info, namely micro. I devoutly wish that your finds can someday meet the business end of a microscope. it would greatly increase the value of the Neotropical material represented on this site.

not all Lactarius produce visible latex when damaged.

i have seen something close to this species numerous times here in florida and it is definitely a Lactarius.

No milky fluid when cut or damaged. Flaesh did not have the distinctive brittle consistency.
