Recognized by sight: Probably is something other than L. lignyotus, but I’m not sure if L. fallax grows in the northeast.

Lactarius gerardi

is suggested by the distant decurrent gills. L. gerardi is usually shorter and stouter than the pics here but it’s common in the northeast.

Not L. fallax

The gills appear to be too widely spaced for the west coast L. fallax. I don’t think it is reported from the eastern side of the US.
