Indigo Milk Cap?

(Lactarius indigo) bruised areas slowly stain green, I am making a spore print now.
I hope this is right, all of my field guides lead me to believe this is it. What do you think?

It is, and where did you find it ? What type of area ? I've been looking for that mushroom for years. The other one that eludes me is Russula xerampelina ( shrimp russula ) Congratulations on finding it.

Thanks Amy. I'll keep those trees in mind . Nothing better then making a dish with multi-colored mushrooms . Such a pretty presentation. I'm probably about 3 weeks behind you folks down yonder ! LOL I am going to seriously start looking for these two mushrooms. Especially the Indigo. Thanks again for the help !!....Mushroom Jack

Well done again! Very cool mushroom and popular edible in Mexico I hear - but I don't have any experience myself so be weary.

I am very weary, that is why I am posting here to get experienced feedback. I want to learn and identify correctly before I start to cook them up. It will take awhile but with all of your help I can get there.
