Copious latex?

or scant? Looks like it could be volemus, except it’s usually difficult to harvest one of these without the gills exuding white latex… especially in a young fruit body which these appear to be. Stature looks a bit like L. aquifluus (also called helvus) except the gills are too light and the cap color a bit too vivid.
