Not Suillus bovinus, but the stem is too exposed to tell the details.

Do you remember what does the stem look like? Is there an annulus? Are there a lot of granular dots? Is there any yellow color towards the apex?

I’m not

familiar with bellini, but granulatus can have an almost white stem. In bovinus, the stem is almost the same colour as the cap and the young tubes are greyish olive, not as pale and yellow as in granulatus.

Both are in SA

We have Suillus granulatus and Suillus bovinus. I do not see the granular stipe surface as noted in my field guide….

Suillus bellinii & Suillus luteus are present as well.
