Why not, you had Alnus near by, right?

Looks like it. Was that in a montane area? The uneven cap surface bothered me a bit initially, but I saw other trusted illustrations that have it. I assume you had Alnus viridis in the area and the milk was white and mildish? This is one amazing taxon — described by Peck from North America(!!), yet the name is used all over the Northern hemisphere. I find it anywhere from the Pacific Coast, through Sierra Nevada, all the way to Bulgaria in montane areas, wet areas, near streams, etc. The spores are fairly similar, but the Western American material has consistently darker disc on the cap…
