certainly not amianthinum, at any rate!

Not familiar with cinnabarinum, but amianthinum has prominant raised striations on the cap, as well as a different color. This does lend credence to my theory that it is a particularly good year for Cystoderma of all stripes
(so to speak) however. Nice mushroom, regardless of its sp. name.

The reddish cap and white stipe looks like Cystoderma cinnabarinum.
Some references call Cystoderma with inamyloid spores Cystodermella, making this Cystodermella cinnabarina!
