This one has me stumped!

I saw this Russula last year in very swampy woodland with birch and willow (wooden walkways needed for pedestrian access). In fact, the last photo shows the same russula in the same location, photographed last October. It shows the gills becoming more cream coloured with age and the depression in the cap. I have never seen another russula with such a dark wine red cap and with the yellow/orange tones. Cap 7-10 cm. When I try to key it out most of the likely candidates seem to prefer conifers.
