|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Found this fungus in the woods of Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary.. in the month of August. It was a cloudy day, and inside the deep woods it was quite dark. Had to use flash to get a clearer view.|
Not sure about the species yet. Some possibilities are:
1. Admirable bolete (Boletus mirabilis)
2. Common Laccaria (Laccaria laccata)
3. Fringed Tubaria (Tubaria furfuracea)
Need ID help.

Great photo with fantastic color contrast. About the ID: it's very difficult, almost impossible to identify this species without microscopic analysation. Surely a boletoid fungus, so Laccaria laccata and Tubaria furfuracea are out of question without doubt. Your mushroom is most probably a Boletellus, firstly I thought about B. projectellus, but that species, although very similar to your model, is having ectomycorrhizal connection only with 2-needled pines (Pinus mugo, P. sylvestris), while your photo shows broadleaved environment. However, let's only say you photographed a boletoid species. Next time, please, be more careful with the watermark. This one is pointless and ridiculous.
Best regards, László

What a beautiful bright red mushroom you have found. You've done a great job of photographing it even though as you stated, the lighting was very challenging. I too believe it is probably a type of Bolete.
There are so many different species that it is really hard to say for sure which type it is without a spore sample. I did try to find some images in my Mushroom Guide Books and the closest I came to this one is a Frost's Bolete. Check out this site and see what you think.
