on a small trail(only one was partially above ground) in a mixed forest of pine, fir and redwood. I didn’t really note the immediate habitat but is was fairly dense and mixed.
The photo of the gleba is not very good and I didn’t really look that closely. Also they were quite young .
I do recall the odor being very similar to a Suillus(like S. pungens).
They were initially fairly pale and did redden with handling.
may not be Rhizopogon occidentalis, Ron. I can’t see any locules in the gleba. There shouldn’t be a tuft of basal rhizomorphs at the bottom. I can’t tell if there is an exudate or not. Can you provide more information? Under what trees? Locules present? Soil conditions?
