There are several characters that do not fit La. americanus – the colour of the fruitbodies (not enough red), the shape of the cheilocystidia (clavate, instead of clavate with excrescence), shape of the pileus covering elements.
I wonder whether there is a germ pore in the spores – i cannot see enough details to judge that.
However, from the data given I cannot identify it.
