Please help me identify this mushroom.

I believe this is an Amanita Muscaria of some type, but not sure which type, or if it's Amanita for sure. Maybe you guys can help me out to identify it, and I want to know as well whether it's edible or not. The following description should help a bit:

Habitat:
This mushroom was growing on leaves under pine trees in sandy terrain in suffolk county in new york, USA. Found it today October 23, 2009. I picked it from there in the woods.

Gills:
White (see picture)

Stem:
4 inch lenght, 0.75" diameter, color white, stem slippery, solid inside stem, thick feel.

Cap:
3 inch diameter, color red, slippery texture, convex.

Spore print color:
Haven't gotten one yet. Will edit post tomorrow when I get it.

Other information:
Mushroom smells like regular portobello mushrooms at the supermarket, but they're obviously not.

Russula species.

I will confess something that should be quite obvious, CC.  I love mushrooms, i.e. fungi.  I really do.  I am talking about a strong feeling, i.e. emotion, for them.  I think they are beautiful.  I even dream of them.

Yep. Definitely some form of Russula mushroom. Don't eat it. Many hot tasting Russula species cause problems of a gastrointestinal nature when consumed, resulting in diarrhoea, and vomiting.
Don't want that.

Yes, indeed it looks a lot like a Russula. I searched on Google and it indeed is that one. Thanks very much for your help. I will not be eating that.
