come from the same location where the first collection was made.

KOH profile: grayish on cap, slate gray with a hint of bluish or pruplish on comtext, blackish on pores.

Noted that hemlock was the dominant tree in the collection location. Some oak and other hardwoods as well.

These mushrooms seem to exhibit macro traits of both americanus and subaureus. Although I gave a “could be” to the subaureus proposal, I agree with Walt that, for the time being, these are best called “Suillus species.”

Yeah…

I’m really wondering about the americanus proposal. Although the white remnants on the caps may be on account of the mushrooms being freshly emerged, there’s just not enough overall color to the ones in this collection. Hope to bring some of these home today.

would get an reddish punctate stipe and the veil remnants on the cap also go reddish-brown.

S. americanus… although the color seems not quite right, especially on the stipes. I plan to walk the trail again tomorrow. So I should be able to find a few mature specimens.

remnants and the brownish darkening of the context pointed to S. americanus. But… maybe it’s something different? Looks just like your recent collections, Noah. Found in an area where both hemlock and White Pine are abundant, and where I have collected S. amaricanus during past years.

Not sure what this is… It grows with Eastern Hemlock, has a sour citrus taste and has been really common this year.
