Congratulations On your species novum (Tuber wheeleri) Just checking some posts, and I see That heelsplitter has given evidence that Suillus clintonianus is the North American version of S. grevillei. Its location under Larch lends credence to this proposal, but your species looks like it has seen better days.

Maybe but still it is not grevillei.

At least not the grevillei in original sense. What are the closest relatives of it in Western North America?

Would it assist

to point out Western larch, aka tamarack, is found scattered throughout this elevation and area? Also in the second photo, a portion (just a part) of the glutinous annulus is visible, just below the yellow area under the gills. Don’t know why all of the annulus is not here.

This is not S. grevillei.

Cap is way too brown, no annulus on the stipe is visible, pores are too broad.
Unfortunately I am not experienced enough in American Suilli to tell you a correct name for this.
