the combination of red/yellow/white in the cap is unusual

hard to tell without data on microscopical characters

my best bet would be something in the Pluteus leoninus complex. Could also be something in sec. Celluloderma, but there is something about the texture and aspect of the stipe that reminds me a lot of P. leoninus

very nice.
