Slippery Jack lookout

Suillus luteus

Queensland Mycological Society is targeting population samples of Suillus luteus, S.quiescens, S. granulatus, S. collinitis, S bovinus and S. corthurnatus (5-10 sporocaps collected in the same area) and asking people to look out for these Slippery Jacks which are out now among pine trees.

Records should be sent to and preferably include:

  • photos
  • record of the pine host
  • a fresh spore print (single cap only and a dried voucher (small slice OK)
  • if possible, fresh tissue in CTAB vial (.5g) or cultures.
