Observation 22630: Suillus Gray

When: 2009-06-28

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

This lone bolete was growing terrestrially in Zone 40. Zone 40 is physically not far from Zone 12, but it’s on the other side of a street and the habitat is fairly different. Red pine, jack pine, white pine, and some hardwoods occur there, along with moss carpets similar to those noted last year for their Cantharellula umbonata, Tricholoma flavovirens, and Suillus eruptions. (One C. umbonata hosting moss carpet is not far away, in Zone 39.)

My guess as to genus is Suillus given the large, angular pores and yellow-dominated colors. It had been nibbled on by something and the stem fell apart when I tried to uproot it. The photos don’t show it but I saw a pink tinge on the cap underside where the stem had been.
