This mushroom was two inches high and two inches wide. The color varied anywhere from white to dark brown.
In soil and debris.
Yeah that looks like it. Thanks Leuba Ridgway and Christine Y.
Not sure if I am right but I think it might be bleeding milkcap (Lactarius rubrilacteus) which is supposed to bleed red latex (assuming that's what I can see in pic 2). Apparently often confused with L.deliciosus (saffron milkcap). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactarius_...
Have you tried posting on mushroomobserver.org? They are very helpful with getting down to species ID.
That's what I thought, but I couldn't figure out which kind though.
Looks like Lactarius, not sure which species though.
