Observation 23439: Suillus Gray
When: 2009-05-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This observation was made in the same area as #23320, #23380, #23381, #23436 and #23438.
While the others were near the outer perimeter of a pinus canopy, this observation was at the base of a neighbouring eucalypt 3m,(10ft)from the pinus canopy.
It showed speckle marks on the stalk which suggested to me a Suillus but the pores and colour were unlike anything else in that area. I did not touch for bruise testing or stickyness of cap as it is an open public parkland, very exposed and council workers nearby so I left the fungi for other people to enjoy.

I have added photos of the pinus tree to help assist with identification and will try to find the name of tThe council workers e tree from council records.The council workers quickly disposed of any plant which was considered ‘out of place’.
If I find the name of the tree I will post it!

Pinus canariensis

Hm, should have recognized it. Stayed in Gran Canaria in the Tamadaba National Park mushrooming a few years ago and there were plenty of Suillus bellinii and Suillus collinitus. So I guess now that Irene is right.

I finally tracked down a member of the City Council who could help me with parklands and plant species. "The pine tree in question is a Pinus canariensis (it has upright cones as described by you). This tree was extensively planted throughout the Park Lands and can still be found in a number of locations.

Native to the Canary Islands its natural range has been reduced and today only the islands of Tenerife, La Palma and Gran Canaria still have large forests of it."

Hope this helps to identify the fungi thanks.

the eastern North American one; ours is paler and only grows with Pinus strobus

A good question

And there are ones introduced from South Africa too. I cannot say by pictures alone. The best way would be to ask about the origin of the pine trees. Macroscopically the specimen all look similarly but I think this one is not an European.

Is this the European S. granulatus or the eastern North American one or the western N.A. granulatus sensu Thiers which I believe that McNabb described from New Zealand (where it was introduced) as S. subacerbus
