Do you have any more photos

Do you have any more photos of the stipe. L aurantiacum has a distinct red hue.

Thank you Flaxton. I've added

Thank you Flaxton. I've added another photo of a close up of the stem - that is what you mean by the stipe isn't it?

Yes there are technical names

Yes there are technical names for all the parts - stem/stipe ring/annulus cap/pilipellis and I use both all the time.
Thanks for the next photo but that still leaves me unsure. The overall colour of the photo seems a bit on the red side and with a bit of adjustment in Photoshop it all looks much closer to L versipelle but that might be me just "fiddling the books" to fit with what I think it might be.

That red colour does look

That red colour does look very strange, initially it reminded me of B. rubellus but of course that is quite different in many other ways.
