Russula brevipes…..it has yellow orange spore print….peppery taste, I find it rather common right now around here….I will be doing more study on it soon…

which I have only seen with R. brevipes (rarely). I agree it certainly looks like Russula, though. I would not call this brevipes as it has too much yellow in the cap.
