Habitat please?

I'm thinking it might be a Charcoal Burner (Russula cyanoxantha). This is quite variable and can have a concave cap of this colour. It would be under broad-leaved trees.
A photo of the gills and more detail of the stem would help, too. With Russulas (and I could have the wrong genus, it might be a Clitocybe, for instance), taste and chemical reactions can be essential to be sure. Some are poisonous, so only taste with the tip of the tongue. If in doubt, don't!
