I think I can see the forked gills now, thanks. And, “intervenose gills”…I was wondering what those structures were called and am glad to have a name for them now! They are so cool. Thanks (again).

I see some forking near the stipe…

which is a trait seen in a variety of different Russula species. An interesting feature seen here is the prominently intervenose gills.

has gills that are forked at variable distances form the stipe. Some of the forks are usually found fairly close to the margin.
