Observation 27572: Suillus Gray

Mycorrhizal with Eastern red oak (Quercus palustris) in an Oregon park. Veil thick and felt-like (a portion can still be seen at the edge of the cap in the bottom-most photo). May be Suillus sphaerosporus, but that species is not supposed to be in Oregon. Pileus dark red, tacky to slimy. No gladules noticed on stipe.

What appears to be a bit of veil remnant on cap is actually a piece of tissue which became stuck to cap. I was trying to hide it, but apparently not to your discerning eye.
