Interesting proposal. I did some checking and one of the important field characters for S. sinuspaulianus according to Smith and Thiers is a felty floccose partial veil. As compared to this obs S. sunuspaulianus has thick tubes, reticulation above the annulus and scales below it, and soft watery context.

Could this be the elusive Suillus sinuspaulinus?

Stem looks dry, colors are right, reddish bug holes, & maybe some reticulation. Quite northern too.
