But it is Eastern Asia nevertheless

Thank you.

This one had a strong smell (I couldn’t think of what it reminded me when I picked it, but yes, probably something like almonds). It was growing, if I remember correctly, in moss with the Asian Pinus sibirica. So I guess this can be either named punctipes or just be left as Suillus sp. Punctipes is said to grow in the Russian Far East, but this is far west from there.

As far as I know

Suillus plorans is confined to Europe with Pinus cembra, never has a whitish flesh and never a smell like almonds.
Suillus punctipes can occur in Asia too but I do not know that species live.
