Brilliant red.

Much redder than our material usually, but when very wet and young, can have an appearance of fresh red shellac.

I am confident it H lactifluorum but im not used to see it that red even mature.

Was this, by chance, found near your Russula brevipes?

Very common parasite, especially in sandy soils in my area.
