Observation 191194: Suillus pungens Thiers & A.H. Sm.
When: 2014-12-01

Notes: externally: slight pleasant smell, definitely not pungent
internally: strong lovely anisey smell

I’m not a Suillus person but I’m finding a lot, what characters should I be noting for this genus?

growing in the same place at the same time as the Suillus in obs 191197

hey, sorry for the doubtful. I only went that low so the consensus name would reflect S. pungens. I could have alternatively voted “I’d Call it That”, and I wouldn’t have had to downvote Suillus at all. The voting system at MO is weird, usage is idiosyncratic, sorry if I was unexpectedly rough

Easy on the “doubtful”!

I had braced myself for a “Could Be”.

Sliced, this one’s flesh turned light yellow in the cap and lower stem, stayed white in the mid-stem.

Color and texture of the cap surface, presence/absence of partial veil or glandular dots, any bluing on the pores or in cut flesh, and crucially, host tree association. Identity of nearby Chroogomphus and Gomphidius can also be helpful .
