Image of <i>Suillus granulatus</i> (L.) Roussel 1796

Description:

Weeping Bolete (Suillus granulatus) in grass under Pinus sp. beside Ingliston Road, Ballan, Victoria, Australia. Photographed on 1 May 2015.Pileus up to 23 cm across in large specimens, but more commonly around 15 cm, yellow to yellow-brown when young turning a more reddish brown as they age. All the specimens I saw were dry - not viscid (became slimey after rain). Spore print a light brown to yellow brown. Flesh with a slight fruity to earthy odour. Stype to about 5 or 6 mm, white, but with a little orange toward base, slightly hollow as maturing, but not extensively so - even in old specimens.
