Unknown red mushroom

I was hiking in a wooded area and noticed this beautiful mushroom. I didn't want to pick it as it was the only one. Shiny and bright red.

Anyone know what kind of mushroom this is? Saskatchewan Canada.

Definitely not Amanita caesarea, but most likely a Russula, either pulchra (although those are usually dry) or possibly emetica (my guess).

One is edible the other regrettable!

Looks like Amanita caesarea... be careful with mushrooms of this genus.
