The mushroom was need evergreen trees as you can see the needles. I didn’t look under to see how it looked under the hood.

Recognized by sight: After looking at the larger photo with a microscope, can see white or creamy wide-spaced gills on the right-hand edge. Could be R. densifolia, but would need to scratch the stipe or break the cap to be more certain.

I think Debbie is correct. But without seeing more of the gills, can’t give much more information.

Same mushroom?

The top photo looks like a Russula. I don’t recognize the mushrooms in the bottom photo. Do you have reason to believe they’re the same? If not, they’re better off as two separate observations. More information will be helpful, too. What kind of trees were they growing near? Or on. What color are the gills? Are the gills attached to the stipe?
