Recognized by sight: not exactly sure which of the candy-cap impostors are involved here, but none of them appear to be L. rufus (which is larger, darker, pinker, and grows with bishop and lodgepole pine)

if they don’t have the odor of candy caps when dried, they probably aren’t.
Lactarius rufus is a possiblity if the taste is intensely acrid…

I collected some the other day near this location and they smell great like maple syrup, these ones however were growing on a mossy steep hill under tan-oaks and were sticky but lacked the maple smell even when dried, any ideas?
