Observation 71185: Suillus Gray

I found this basidiocarp near the trail leading to Blue Lake. My notes say it’s a bolete. I think it might be native only to the west coast states.

Recognized by sight: It looks sorta like Suillus ochraceoroseus. The cap is faded but still has pink tones. S. cavipes also looks like this as do a couple of Albatrellus

Recognized by sight: Could easily be this. S. ochraceoroseus is doubtful because I don’t believe there is larch in this area of Washington.

distribution is way off, but the likeness is almost unmistakable.

unfortunately, this is all I have. This photo dates back to the time when I was just getting into mushroom identification business. I was hoping that someone would recognize this distinct-looking boletus sp. just by its textured pileus.

how about some more pictures
