I didn’t take any home with me, but I’ll observe the latex color change next time I find them – which should be soon, as they are quite plentiful in this area.
It takes a while but check for olive green coloration. Lactarius glaucescens was a considered a variety. It is the more common one in my area. L. piperatus often has latex that will dry yellowish.
