Distinct decurrent gills

This is what I’d call Russula sanguinea if it were in Europe.
The american ones with similar characters are sometimes called Russula rosacea (var. americana is one), could be a synonym or at least very close relative(s) to Russula sanguinea.
To be sanguinea, it should grow with pine, have a very acrid taste, hardly peeling cuticle (just the margin), and a pale ochre spore print.
