Blackish-red Russula (Russula krombholzii).  Mushrooms in the Russula family are gilled mushrooms with distinctively brittle flesh.  The edges of the mushroom cap are often broken with gills that easily fall off.  This species can be found from May to October in deciduous and mixed deciduous/evergreen woods.
