My best guess for either obs (I think the two are the same) is Suillus. But this mushroom gives one so little to latch onto in the way of macro-traits. And like with your collection, Brian, no spores dropped out of mine.

Maybe if someone makes a collection of more mature specimens, we may get an idea. I’ll be unable to return to the spot where I got mine… until at least a week from now.

I did get an orange KOH reaction on the cap surface for my collection.
