Whether weather is dry or humid, hot or cold, whether soil is rich or poor, host young or old or healthy or sick, a. s. o.

Thanks again, Gerhard.

So the difference in appearance has more to do with collection site?

There’s nothing wrong with this here.

Weather seems to be rather dry but no anomalities for S. grevillei.
There’s nothing similar in Europe except introduced Suillus clintonianus but this it is clearly not. S. grevillei is extremely common in Europe and can have all colors from almost dark yellow brown to brightest lemon yellow and can be rather stout to very small.

Cap appears at least tacky.

Sticky to the touch. Stipe looks odd to me Gerhard. In Audubon Field Guide, stipe should be mostly yellowish, with some brown bruising where handled. This obs. seems to have a stipe mostly whitish background color, with some raised reddish or purplish areas at least on the lower stipe.

This is classic Suillus grevillei.

You just overlooked the larch nearby :)

Not many beech in my area.

Those are mostly ornamentals locally. I bet your guess is better than mine.

Mixed hardwood forest – mainly beech, oaks and hazelnut trees
