That’s a very typical Eastern NA granulatus – the white pine cone in the photo is a good touch.

surface of granulatus as sometimes having a “checkered” appearance. Roody says that the minutely bumpy cap surface of granulatus is due to dried blotches of gluten. Very common in our pine woods here in PA; the caps generally have this type of appearance.

Looks typical

Of Suillus granulatus in E. north America.

Don’t know about the pale margin

but the cracking cap surface doesn’t look right for granulatus.

Is this white margin only due to fotographic causes?

If not, I’ve never seen such in true S.granulatus.
