I think I posted Suillus bellinii from Italy (Umbria) here on M.O. … I also found it in Spain (Gran Canaria) but have no digital photos from them. Maybe some day I will scan all those old pics.

It has pinkish stem base.

The thing is that those photos are bad and quite forgettable! Too much exposure.
It’s from a location where Suillus collinitus fruits for at least two decades now. It is common here everywhere, especially late in the season.
Host is common Pinus sylvestris and maybe a few Pinus nigra ssp. austriaca intermingled.

With the very pale cap margin, pale stem and no trace of pink at the stem base, it looks so different from the collinitus I have seen.
What kind of pine is it growing with?

S. bellinii is mediterranean and does not occur in Austria.

Plus the cap color is more variegated, not with streaked fibrils but with lighter portions interchanging with darker.

Why not S. bellinii?
