Observation 11887: Suillus Gray
When: 2008-09-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This mushroom looked from the top like some of the damaged Russulas I tend to see, but when upturned it proved to be a bolete. The viscid brownish cap points vaguely in the direction of Suillus. Stem white with brownish specks toward the top, and pore surface a bit decurrent and pores radially-arranged near the stem, also pointing to Suillus.

I had the strangest camera problems in the field photographing this sucker. The pore surface has come through in crisp clarity in many of my recent photos of bolete bottoms, but in this case all I could get was a general appearance of a spotted or networked surface, without apparent three-dimensional depth! The outlines of the pores can be seen near the stem, where the pore surface is brownish but the tubes whitish.

Flesh whitish, as indicated where there is damage.

In moss under pine.
