Observation 169190: Xerocomus subtomentosus group
When: 2014-07-07
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing among mixed hardwoods dominated by oak. The stipe reminded me of a much muted version of Suillus spraguei as did the shape of the pores.

Rudimentary ridges on the upper stipe and dense tufts of hyphae are consistent with the description by Smith & Thiers.

The combination of dry cap, non radially arranged pores and hardwood habitat all point away from Suillus.

What makes you rule out Suillus?
