Suillus corthinatus?

The fruiting was in a stand of mostly loblolly pines. If it is Suillus, maybe it is corthinatus? I read that S. salmonicolor is mycorrhizal with jack pines and S. corthinatus with loblolly.

gills vs. pores?

The description of Cortinarius in MushroomExpert.com indicates that it has gills. This mushroom has pores.
Any other thoughts on what it might be?
