These reminds me the one i have found growing on fallen Pinus roxburghii log.
(I will post them soon in another thread)
… are these growing in soil or or some decaying wood or log?
Russula nepalensis Adhikare ??
If these are growing as solitary in humus rich soil and not on decaying wood , then it must be a Russula sp.
That’s why i have asked you about its growing habitat. moreover Russula is softer and brittle unlike Lentinus which is flexible and not brittle and soft.
Yes it looks close to Russula nepalensis
Here’s one illustration that looks close
