Kingdom: Fungi
Division: Basidiomycota
Order: Agaricales
Family: Suillaceae
Genus: Suillus
Species: Suillus grevillei

The species of Suillus genus are living on the Northern hemisphere (14 in Europe), from arctic to subtropical regions. The number of the species is ca. 40. All build mycorrhysa connection, and almost all with fir (pine)-tree, only 2 with decidous trees. No poisonous specie in the genus.

This fungus perfectly shows September already came, the big mushroom season starts... Suillus grevillei builds mycorrhysa connection exclusively with larch (Larix decidua) - the fungus is unable to live without the tree. It's a connection where both parties are supporting each other.

It can be easily recognized from its yellow, wet, sticky cap.

Edible, good for mushroom-pickles or -stew, though I also like it as "mushroom-and-eggs".
