Cap picture…

It’s not what we call resimus. Cap is wrong. Which means you are back to the scrobiculatus group.

This is a “resimus” from CA

Added a picture that shows cap color; don’t know if it can count as white, which is what it is said to be in L. resimus.

From a little note I made at collection time, the taste was acrid.

I have a question about droplets on the stipe. It was not water (the weather was dry), but somewhat resinous if I remember correctly. What is it and does it have a diagnostic value? I do remember thinking (dreaming up?) that these droplets might give rise to scrobiculi, but I don’t really know how a stem becomes strobiculate. M. Kuo writes: “The potholes are the result of a thin layer of slime, and represent areas where the cells on the stem surface have become gelatinized”.

Thank you all for the effort put into identifying this Lactarius.

Surely not

scrobiculatus. I don’t know what you might have in Oregon, maybe something in the vicinity of citriolens (if it’s growing with hardwoods).

Not sure about L. scrobiculatus

because the stem is not scrobiculate.
