No specimen available

These mushrooms were huge! very slimy caps, some were 8-10 inches in diameter. growing on the ground, mostly on patches of moss, near river in damp coniferous forest. surrounded by pines and birch trees. i’ve had several species in mind (Boletus Badius? Suillus Luteus?), but once again these were huge mushrooms—bigger than most of the species i’ve looked into.

..Suillus with 8-10 inch wide caps? my first impression was Suillus Luteus, but every description i find leans closer to 8-10 centimeters; not 8-10 inches.
