S. granulatus or S. brevipes most likely, but not S. pungens…

S. pungens prefers Monterey Pine (3 needles) of which SPSP seems to have just a few planted. In fact I do not recall having seen S. pungens there. S. brevipes likes two-needle pines like Bishop pine. Of course, identifying a single specimen is tricky. There is also Suillus granulatus of which SPSP has quite a few and if I had a choice here I’ll probably suggest that name… I hope I’m not missing something here, as I haven’t done Suillus since last year.

Have fun, Dimitar http://www.mushroomhobby.com

I found a extra picture to see the stipe better

yup. but when they have the same cap color, it’s the glandular dots (or not) …

Color changes

There is some odor and taste differences I think, except those are subtle. THe main difference is that S. pungens goes through a series of color changes. It can start out almost white, with slight green-grey, then darkens to tan-olive-brown, and becomes patchy in age. S. brevipes pretty much stays the same color, or either slightly darkens or lightens in age. There is a medium size and age where the two look alike.

…or S. pungens looks like S. brevipes when there is too much light on the stipe?

so, brevipes is similar to pungens but w/out the glandular dots?
