Recognized by sight: I’d say it resembles R. luteolus a lot but the name is not in the list yet and I didn’t want to create a new species since it could be another similar species just as well :)

Without microscopy Rhizopogons VERY hard to tell apart.

Appear to be associated with Pinus, and have yellowish peridium or yellowish rhizomorphs. To me that suggests R. truncatus or R. occidentalis. Would need to know what species of pine was nearby for a better guess.
