Likely either Russula or Lactarius

based on cap and stipe (stem) features. There is staining on the sliced specimen, if you blow the photo up as large as possible: the cap has definate reddish-coral stains, and I suspect the stipe might also bruise that color, if a fingernail were scraped against it. The reason it might be a Lactarius is that not all Lactarii have visible latex but often haven strongly inrolled margins to the cap. Solid stipe favors Russula.
