Observation 11300: Suillus weaverae (A.H. Sm. & Shaffer) Kretzer & T.D. Bruns
When: 2008-09-18
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

Found these scattered in an area near pine and birch. The brownish yellowish colors are typical of a big subclass of the boletes.

First two photos show a specimen a short distance from the main group. Next shows three close together. Next is the middle of those three, up close, from above and then from the side. Sixth is the same one uprooted. The somewhat elongated and irregular pore arrangement is apparent in that photo.

The seventh photo is of a bolete some distance away from the main group. It might not be of the same species as the others, but it doesn’t look all that different. There is an LBM in the same photo, behind the bolete — this had gills (obs. 11302).

Two smaller, somewhat different-looking LBMs were near the main group (obs. 11301).

With the somewhat tacky-looking cap and the yellow pores it does look like it could be, more specifically, a Suillus. The pores seem less large and angular than typical for that genus, though.
