No specimen available

In soil, under Douglas fir-tanoak-madrone canopy. By it’s size alone if it is a Russula, it could only be xerampelina, alutacea, subnigricans, fragrantissima, cyanoxantha, brevipes, or albonegra. It doesn’t blacken, it has a very mild taste and aroma, which eliminates albonegra, fragrantissima and subnigricans. The stem is tinted pinkish on one side. This one is very stout. Any Russula experts out there?
