Used references: Helene M.E. Schalkwijk-Barendsen’s “Mushrooms of Northwest North America”. “Orange and buff in the illustration, but they can also be red; there are fading spots on the cap; pale buff gills when mature; mild taste; not easily recognizable.” Under the description, p. 209, gills: white at first, then buff; intermediates." Finding this in or near a bog would clinch the identification, as paludosa means “of the bog” in Latin.
