This is one case where microscopy will probably not be of much help.
Macrochemical tests either. The best bet is to keep doing what you’re
doing — good photos in all stages of development.
Also, you may want to dry a fruitbody or two in case someone wants to
study these in greater depth.
Thanks for the feedback Dimitar, there is one old __Pinus radiata on my property growing amongst the native NZ forest, these fruit in abundance around this tree every year around this time, I will make some fresh collections when I get a chance and do some microscopy if it will help!
The taste is slightly bitter and slightly acidic?
This one looks very much like the Californian interpretation of
S. granulatus. To be frank though I am not entirely sure what
S. granulatus is in California.
I find the European material easy to tell apart.
Here are photos from both (top California, bottom Europe, forgot what
This one has always been on the Top 10 list of species to be checked
by molecular means. I absolutely doubt that the name will survive more
Now, looking through Fuhrer’s Australian Fungi guide, he too shows a
photo of a similar Suillus granulatus. Very likely to be an American
I would agree with Irene that it is not S.granulatus. I myself have found many American species under Pinus radiata when visiting Australia. So it is possible that this is S.subacerbus. It also looks much like S.collinitus but this species does not blue in the cap context.
I know that S. granulatus varies a lot, but couldn’t it also be Suillus subacerbus?
