Had me leaning away from pungens, but the sticky/slimy cap had me pretty sure it was Suillus.

Interesting mushrooms.

MykoWeb calls the stipe equal at all ages except for sometimes tapering slightly to the base. these have stout, edulis-like stipes which taper to the apex. everything else appears to check out for S. pungens.

I just keyed out a similar looking suillus that I found in Point Arena,CA to S. pungens. Your photo is of young specimens like the ones that I keyed out.
