Alan, I think this is more likely to be A. basii.

This mushroom has a robust cap, short marginal striations, lacks an umbo, etc. In all these ways, it is more like A. basii. Recent genetic studies suggest that there is a lot of cap color variation in basii. This cap color is fairly typical, but with stronger red tint than many examples I’ve seen.

Very best,
