Suillus borealis A.H. Smith, Thiers & O.K. Mill. (1965)
|This is one
relatively infrequent species that is easily identified by the strongly
appendiculate, white & purplish-gray cottony margin -- the partial veil
hangs on the cap instead to form an annulus on the stalk. According to Arora "I never
found Suillus borealis with anything but 5-needled pines in the
Pacific Northwest". The collection below is from Sierra Nevada where fruited
in the company of the common, low elevation member
of the "white pine" group -- Sugar Pine.
Another species where the partial veil remains attached to the cap is Suillus albidipes (=neoalbidipes).
