those yellow-orange gills are wrong for the sp., cap doesn’t look like the description (see Milk Mushrooms of North America, Bessette, Harris and Bessette, pg. 211-212) latex runs from white to whey, often changing to yellow. found with alder. see Darvin DeShazer’s photo of this species on MO, which does match both photo and description.
what micro features made it absolutely an occidentalis and no other, in light of its poor macro match?
Is the macroscopic difference mainly the darker colour? That is all I can really tell, at least from the photos… I wonder what the smell was like, even fresh, Candy caps have a distinctive odour.
