Certainly a Rhizopogon, and very similar to R. rubescens.

The question now is whether it was associated with the Coastal redwood twigs shown with it, or with a more distant but still nearby Lodgepole pine (also showing in the leaf litter).

R. rubescens is often with Pinus. But so is R. ochraceorubens, which is often found in sandy soils. Only the spores will say for certain.
