Here’s a photo of a simultaneous fruiting which I identified as being Gomphidius subroseus and Suillus caerulescens:


Sadly I don’t have herbarium specimens from that event.

It would be great to really document this and understand the associations elsewhere. C. vinicolor has been reported (and documented) from other parts of the country, but S. pungens appears to be strictly western NA.

In the west, Chroogomphus ochraceus seems to be with Suillus fuscotomentosus.

Do we know if other species are parasitic? If so what are the hosts?

Sometimes you don’t need to look at the cystidia.
Chroogomphus vinicolor is parasitic on Suillus pungens.
