Observation 63893: Gomphidius Fr.

We found several fruitbodies of this strange-looking thing during the 2010 Mycoschool in Yugra in different places, so obviously its rare (since no one, including the local experts, had seen it before) but “locally widely distributed” in the region.
Note the conspicuously felty, shaggy-looking cap surface. A Gomphidius, but which one?

no Larix, the possible Suillus host was Pinus sibirica with three linked species, Suillus sibiricus, Suillus cf. placidus, and Suillus pictus. The latter was the most common and abundant of the three.

We also saw a small, red-staining, frail Chroogomphus there, possible Ch. rutilus but I’m not so sure.

Interesting species

At least it doesn’t look like one of the black-staining ones (those that grow with Larix).
Did you make notes of a possible host – and a possible connection with any particular Suillus species?
