I can see “grayish green” on the broken gills in the second photo, as per Irene’s observation.

thanks again, Irene!!!

I’d still be sitting in the forest chewing! Dude, even with 17+ hours of daylight there STILL wasn’t enough time in my day…

Sorry Noah, I know the drill, but the volume was overwhelming, to say the least.

From what I remember, the latex was unchanging, taste prob. peppery (most were) and tree associates…anything from Sitka spruce to alder! It had such distinctive coloration, tho, I was hopeful that somebody would recognize it. I can check some of my other in situ photos for duff clues.
