Recognized by sight: Hollow stipe, yellow-orange glandules on stipe, bruising yellow-orange near the edge of the gills, and what appears to be tiny droplets of liquid along the gill edges.

Used references: Mushrooms of Northwest North America, by Helene M.E. Schalkwijk-Barendsen, p. 220. This does not appear to be an exact match, though. If L. affinis, likely mycorrhizal with conifers. In this case, hemlock seems possible. Specimen does not appear bearded, nor does it have what I would call white latex, but rather copies colorless latex dripping in small droplets from the gill edges.

I’m thinking birch might be a possibility?
