uncertain mushroom

Description:

Ball-shaped fungus without much of a stalk. It seemed the main color was tan, but a greenish-blue bruise-like color took over many parts of them. They were very slimy.

Habitat:

The cool, wet forest of the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The ground was very leaf-covered and alive with greenery, but mushrooms were fairly scarce.

I always try to get a pic of the underside for later

It's been a while, but I believe they had gills.

or they could be a boletus. A view of the underside would help with identification

did they have gills or sponge underneath? These superficially look like Lactarius deliciosa, but would need more detail to be sure.
