Blue-staining slippery Jack (Suillus tomentosus)

  • Suillus tomentosus is one of only a few blue-staining species of Suillus. This fact, together with the orangish, "tomentose" (Mycologese for "velvety" or "felty") cap and the association with lodgepole pine or jack pine, make the mushroom fairly easy to identify.
  • The European species Suillus variegatus also grows under 2-needle pines; it is virtually identical but lacks glandular dots on the stem. 
  • Some authors consider Suillus tomentosus and Suillus variegatus to be synonyms.

Blue-staining slippery Jack (Suillus tomentosus)


Ecology: Mycorrhizal with two-needle pines, especially lodgepole pine, and jack pine; growing scattered or gregariously; summer and fall (also in winter in coastal California); widely distributed in North America but apparently rare or absent in the southeast.

Cap: 5-15 cm; convex becoming broadly convex; sticky or fairly dry; at first covered with a fine, grayish, felty covering, but often becoming smoother with age; yellow to orangish-yellow; sometimes developing reddish spots and stains; the margin at first inrolled.
