I hope I’m right with the identification of today’s fungus, but if not, someone please correct me. I believe this is Hygrocybe coccinea, commonly known as red waxy cap.
One of the difficulties of identifying fungi by visual comparison to other photographs or illustrations is the morphology changing as they age. An example of a good match (in my mind) include the photographs on this page. Mykoweb’s Hygrocybe coccinea page with its links to ten other photographs contains only one photograph out of the ten that is a close match. It certainly would have been helpful if I’d photographed these a few days earlier or followed Michael Kuo’s advice on collecting mushrooms for study or making spore prints. As a small aside, if I had intended to collect these for identification, I would have needed a permit (they were growing in a provincial park).
