This is not Leucogaster.. The peridium of Leucogaster rubescens is yellowish when fresh and only turns red when dried.

Anyway the spores are typical Rhisopogon type which is nothing like a Leucogaster.

This fits Rhisopogon vulgaris with its yellow and red tones of the fresh sporocarp and spore measurements.



I don’t think so

Was there any latex when you sliced through the gleba?

Reminds me of Leucophleps or Leucogaster. Reddish staining on the peridium strongly indicative of Leucogaster rubescens, which is known from Southeastern Canada.
