I have found a couple young ones of these and the tops are brown and somewhat leathery. they don’t have gills and the pores are greenish. I don’t recall a smell, other than it didn’t smell like food. . . .

Recognized by sight: Currently this observation is showing two different species. The one with the dark spots on the stipe is probably a Suillus. The other photo is not in focus enough to tell what it is other than a bolete of some sort.

Clear photos with the pores, stipe and cap all in focus are critical for making a good id.
