They were a bit dried out to give a lot of latex, but the lack of firs and abundance of pine needles means it will probably be deliciosus.

this is the same fine cluster that i showed earlier…

we have three similar species in N. CA: deliciousus and deterrimus (with a primary purple staining), both with orange latex, and rubrilacteus (with red). Dry conditions caused very scant latex in these Sierra specimens, but I also noted, as did you, that the latex was a reddish orange. But rubrilacteus is associated with Doug Fir, and these mushrooms were growing under pine. I still think that they were deliciousus, but I will ask the folks who prepped these for dinner what color they noted when they sliced them.

Are you sure?
