Not much i can say about this one as i was not astute about observing. I can say that it was REALLY slimy.

seems a match, based on Dan Moliter’s photo taken at Stroud’s Run, Ohio. I think Douglas should make the identification, though.
Take a look at Lactarius argillaceifolius var. argillaceifolius and see what you think…
and tentatively came up with Lactarius allardii. I’ve not heard or seen this species, and am not possitive enough to suggest it. You may want to do a Google search for photos of L. allardii and compare with your collection, Damon.
Hollow stipe and bleeding gills where sliced screams Lacarius to me. Don’t understand why anyone would question Lactarius for the identification. As for the species, an observation of what kind of leaves are in the photos suggests it was found near beech? Can you confirm Damon?
