Lactarius sect. deliciosi
The caps were mostly flat and ranged in color from orange to to tannish orange. They all appeared bruised with blue/green color on the caps. The stipe and gills also bruised. The gills leaked white and orange latex.
Habitat: I found a large patch (50+) of them growing along a nature trail in a swampy, mixed forest.
This section of mushrooms is very confusing to identify in the US. This looks like Lactarius deliciosus, but that species doesn't occur in this country. There are subspecies and similar species in this group, but I don't know if an exact ID is possible.
