Observation 28577: Suillus Gray

When: 2009-11-20

Collection location: Weed, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Arend Thomas (arend)

No specimen available

These were found covered by needles under ponderosa pine. The spore print is a Cinnamon brown color. The cap is moderately viscid and soft bodied/spongy, even on young specimens. The underside of the cap left yellow stains on anything that it came in contact with, including my fingers. Unfortunately these photos were taken more than 24 hours after the mushrooms were picked. When they were fresh the stipe and pores were a more more vivid lemony yellow. Stipe is yellow on top, turning brown with handling, and brown on the lower portion. The closes I could come to identifying it was suillus volcanalis but definitely not under Jeffrey pine.
