Small cream to peach-toned (conjoined twins) mushroom(s) growing under pines, oaks, and hickories at the edge of a dense mixed forest in NW Georgia (Gordon County), US. June 15, 2018.

Exudes white latex which stains the stipe and a gills brownish pink. Odor is pleasant. Sorry, I did not get a taste of this (was not coping well with the heat).

Any ID help is much appreciated! Not sure about this one at all!

Checks out on everything but the relatively widely-spaced gills.
