This fits nicely in the S. brevipes clade.

Suillus volcanalis is probably not a real species

We’ve sequenced two Thiers collections of volcanalis, including the type, and its identical to S. pseudobrevipes, but this specimens I’d call brevipes

so near and yet…

the perfect fresh example of this species that I have been saving has disappeared from my fridge (I suspect the Brownies or perhaps poltergeists). All that I have left is dessicata. Can I still do the various chemical tests on that?

It would be totally cool if this was volcanalis, and it does have some of that mushroom’s features (esp. where Thiers mentions that it is similar to brevipes)
but I will need some hard convincing before I go with that almost-never-seen suillus.

what you call brevipes in the west is a different species anyway…

an intriguing suggestion, Darv…

I will try and scope it today.

Eastern colleagues, this is NOT a brevipes!!!

it resembles brevipes…

but the pore color shape and size are wrong.
