...another link I find quite informative and interesting ( from the UK but they do mention species in the US). There are a few similar species so, I hope an expert who knows fungi in your area would be able to help to conifrm.http://www.first-nature.com/fungi/boletu...
This could be a Red Cracking Bolete (Xerocomellus chrysenteron). The stem shows beautiful reticulation and the cap is cracked and slightly red. Also the pore surface shows dark bruising.Have a read of this for other details you might have observed - like the actual colour, type of trees in the yard if any, etchttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xerocomellu...
What happened to the first pic Kris?? The stipe has gone really purple. In the other pic it looks the right colour to me (pinkish/red). Maybe the settings on your cam got bumped or something?? Could be a 'cracking bolete' if we ignore the purple.
