seems a match, based on Dan Moliter’s photo taken at Stroud’s Run, Ohio. I think Douglas should make the identification, though.

I’d go with…

and tentatively came up with Lactarius allardii. I’ve not heard or seen this species, and am not possitive enough to suggest it. You may want to do a Google search for photos of L. allardii and compare with your collection, Damon.

I think you are correct to call it Lactarius.

Hollow stipe and bleeding gills where sliced screams Lacarius to me. Don’t understand why anyone would question Lactarius for the identification. As for the species, an observation of what kind of leaves are in the photos suggests it was found near beech? Can you confirm Damon?
