Recognized by sight: Looks more red than purple, at least to me. Fistulina hepatica has pores. They are discrete. Citrus sounds right for the smell: Fistulina hepatica contains Vitamin C, one of the few fungi that does.
Used references: Arora, Mushrooms Demystified.

The fistulina hepatica I researched didn’t have stipes. The one I posted does, its not in the picture, but I mentioned it in the description.
