In a grassy field near a sidewalk. I don’t know if the red markings belong to this mushroom or if it’s something growing on it or something someone spilled on the grass.

Blotches indicative?

Do the red blotches indicate something? An immature mushroom, perhaps?

Given that the red looks like the exact shade of red that many Russula’s have, my guess is that this wasn’t painted.
