No specimen available

This lone Russula with a distinctive cap color, yellow spores, mild taste, no odor and relatively small, should be easy to id.
The spores were approx. 8.0 X 6.0 microns and amyloid.
Hopefully someone will recognize it.

My poor spore photo threw me off. Everything else fits for Russula parazurea.
