Observation 23367: Suillus Gray

When: 2009-07-20

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

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

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.
