Under what pine? Why not S. bellinii?

I collected Suillus mediterraneensis in Greece on Jan 1. I haven’t studied that group very carefully, but your collection looks more like S. bellinii to me. Any reason why it isn’t? Curious to hear more as to how the id was decided.

similar gestalt to pungens, but faded colors.
