Agreed, an explanation is warranted.

Your mushroom is too pink in my opinion. The problem with Russula is a lack of user friendly books or keys. Throwing names at red Russulas is risky. Spore prints, cuticle peeling, taste, a collection with young and mature specimens, are all needed and even then a microscope is needed to be sure in many cases.
Brian Looney on this site works Russulas pretty hard and even he sometimes has to settle for a section or only a genus identification.
