in western NA

Suillus pungensChroogomphus vinicolor subsp. californicus
Suillus pseudobrevipesChroogomphus pseudovinicolor
Suillus fuscotomentosusChroogomphus ochraceus
Suillus flavidusChroogomphus sp. (small dark capped spp. “OMS” just posted it within the last week)
Suillus tomentosusChroogomphus sp. (another undescribed one)
Boletus mirabilisChroogomphus tomentosus
Suillus lakeiGomphidius subroseus
Suillus punctatipesGomphidius smithii (I think, have seen it together about five times)
Suillus ponderosusGomphidius glutinosus
Suillus caerulescensGomphidius oregonensis (the last two might grow with both?)
Gastrosuillus sp.Gomphidius pseudoflavipes

Documentation of these relationships would be great!
