Looks like L. xanthogalactus

Need to see the latex, it should be white, and then change yellow in 10-15 secs. If it is cold and damp out, it might take 1-2 mins, it helps to breathe on it to warm up the latex and it will change yellow quicker.

If that is true, then these are L. xanthogalactus

A neat Lactarius

I’m sure someone will recognize it, but it is always helpful to know the colour of the latex, and if/how it changes.
