I found these in a hardwood forest…the predominate trees in the area are oak, maple and cedar. These specimens were terrestrial. When cut, there is no latex oozing or bruising staining noted to speak of.

based on cap and stipe (stem) features. There is staining on the sliced specimen, if you blow the photo up as large as possible: the cap has definate reddish-coral stains, and I suspect the stipe might also bruise that color, if a fingernail were scraped against it. The reason it might be a Lactarius is that not all Lactarii have visible latex but often haven strongly inrolled margins to the cap. Solid stipe favors Russula.
