Recognized by sight: you have to taste it to assure if it is acrid or mild! But never deal with Russula anyway without microscope and years of experience :)

so we have the same species in both observations and it is not R. ionochlora. This one is mild and grows with oak.
But I do not know which one this is.
If the odor were more like mouldy cheese (like Camembert) …
