These had some of the characteristics of Suillus brevipes and I was going to consider them a semi-albino version of them. However, besides the cap color being much too light, the pores were receding from the stipe and the stipe itself was dramatically short and stubby.
The main problem were the spores, which were smaller than the ones I just posted in http://mushroomobserver.org/55207?q=2KCh
and they were also less elliptical and more subfusoid.
Couldn’t find a match in either the Thiers or the Bessette Bolete books.
Spore size was ~ 7.0-8.1 X 3.0-3.1 microns
