Observation 26202: Suillus acidus (Peck) Singer

When: 2009-09-20

Collection location: Big Thicket, Polk Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

This is another bolete that I can’t find a hard match for. Suillus intermedius and Suillus subalutaceus seem possible. The caps were up to 4.6 cm across and slightly viscid. The flesh was yellowish and I did not detect any staining of either it or the pores. There were some scattered glandular dots noticable especially above the thin band-like annulus.
The spores were tawny to cinnamon brown and ~8.0 X 3.0 microns(see photos).
No distinctive odor or taste.

look at the black dots at near the base of the stem. Check out Kuo description.
