Observation 23367: Suillus Gray
When: 2009-07-20
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

This was in fairly poor condition in Zone 45 near Zone 44. Zone 44 is Betula papyrifera dominated hardwoods with some Acer and the odd conifer mixed in; Zone 45 is the more typical quaking aspen/white pine/balsam fir/maple mix.

It looks and quacks like a Suillus. I managed to get a nice closeup of the pore structure; click to the full-size version and it’s clearly three-dimensional with the pore walls distinctly visible. Pores 2-3mm wide, judging scale by the pine needle that’s sticking out of one.
