Who: Chris Hay (hayfield)

No specimen available

GPS coordinates are representative for this neighbourhood, where mushrooms were abundant on lawns where pine and oak trees where never far (mycorrhizal species may be with either the hardwoods or conifers).

I only found one of these. The annulus was huge, slimy, and baggy. Suillus subolivaceus (Slippery Jill) from Mushrooms Demystified seems like something on the right track, but it looks like there’s other similar species so I’m not confident going to species on this one. Maybe Suillus corthunatus from Kuo’s key.
