This one was pretty beat up. It was id’ed by others that know more than I in this area, so I’m just trusting what they say. I’ll try to keep that in mind for the next time I might see golden yellow gills on a Russula.

They have golden yellow gill edges if representable

but there also exists a var. axantha which has them not. Did your specimen have them? It isn’t visible on the pic.
