Description:
Common Names:

short-stemmed bolete, short-stemmed slippery jack, stubby-stalk, short-stalked Suillus

Identification Notes:

Suillus brevipes is among our most common and widespread species. The species name (Latin for “short foot”) indicates the typical short, squat stature, although some specimens do develop longer stipes. It has a slimy to viscid, dark vinaceous brown to cinnamon brown cap when fresh and becomes streaked and yellowish in age. There is no veil or cottony tissue on the edge of the cap, and the stipe is white to yellowish with inconspicuous glandular dots that may become more apparent in age. The pores are yellow, round and usually rather small. It occurs primarily with two-needle pines during late summer and fall.
