look like the R. laurocerasi I’ve seen, which were yellower. Also: why has the Russula genus apparently been deprecated??

could be pectinatoides…

Red or brown spots at the base of the stipe have been reported for several species of sect. Ingratae. Also the smell of almonds may be present to different degrees in some species. It would be helpful to know the taste and to see spores and the edge of the gills for a more accurate ID.

could be laurocerasi, Anna…

the odor of almonds was pretty faint, tho. Is it the only russula in this group that reddens at the base?
