This doesn’t seem to match anything in the SVIMS key. It goes to the R. alutacea group in MDM, whose description it matches fairly well (including the fragility Arora emphasizes).

I have seen many similarities between northern Europe and eastern Canada, but you are probably right about the funga in BC, that it differs more. And as I said – just a thought.
(btw, I prefer the name postiana, at least for the northern taxon I know, not olivascens (Fries sensu Romagnesi non Fries…?)
Russula in North America is very distinct from the one over here and not much serious research has been done since the days of Peck.
grows Russula postiana with variable cap colour, mostly some kind of green. Stem very fragile, and taste mild. Spores with rather sturdy warts and few connections. Just a thought.
