R. cyanoxantha

For R. cyanoxantha group the gills should have a soapy feel to them and be difficult to break. I’ve never seen anything close to R. cyanoxantha having a pink cast to it (though color in most Russula species are extremely variable). Also, the pileus looks like it might be pruinose, which would put it in section Rigidae, though probably in a different subsection than Cyanoxanthinae.
