Proposed Names

Recognized by sight: Miller rejected the subspecies “californicus” in his later revisions of Chroogomphus.
55% (1)
Recognized by sight: Can look macroscopically identical to C. vinicolor and C. rutilus (which doesn’t appear to occur in the US). It’s not clear from the observation what the host Suillus might be or even what species of pine was there. Also there is no microscopy.
83% (1)
Recognized by sight: Red-brown to orange to ocher color, growing with pine, decurrent gills. Microscopy needed to assign to species.
Used references: Miller Jr., O.K. (2003). The Gomphidiaceae revisited: a worldwide perspective. Mycologia 95(1): 176-183.
