Catholics/Cardinal Robes

Question
Why do the cardinals wear robes in red and robes in fuchsia?  Do the colors distinguish them in some way?

Answer
Hi, Noreen:

Sorry I seem to have accidentally overlooked your quetsion when it was first asked... for that I do apologize.
I think the red indicates that they are Cardinal Archbishops, and the fuschia indicates that they are Cardinal Bishops.
