Observation 32929: Suillus hirtellus (Peck) Snell

When: 2009-09-08

Collection location: Blacksburg, Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mark Prosser (mark prosser)

No specimen available

Found in a mixed wood forest with an interesting stem shape with glandular dots. My best guess is a Suillus, possibly luteus but I’m not confident . This was a fairly small mushroom with a 3 inch cap and a 2-3 inch stem. Pore surface is a cream color.

The cap was dry though the stem seemed somewhat moist. Though I can recall conifers I have no clear recall of what kind. No great pore shots, but I’ve added what I have that may be helpful for cap and pore surface. My review of S. hirtellus including some helpful shots from the Duke U. site is very encouraging. Thanks again, Mark Prosser

Hard to say what this is

Doesn’t appears to be S luteus The stem doesn’t seem right. but there really is not enough info. What type of conifers where in the area. Sullus on the east favors mostly conifer woodland. It would be nice to have a pore shot. The small granules reminds me of S intermedius. My other thought is S. hirtellus. Was the cap dry or slimy? I have seen a dry form but larger growing under white pine that I d as S hirtellus.

Looking for ideas about the specie identification for this attractive Suillus with the interesting stem form and attractive light orange cap. Thanks, Mark Prosser
