 Remarks:Suillus quiescens is most distinctive when young and fresh, and then only by macroscopic characteristics. It gives one the impression of a pale version of the eastern North American S. brevipes because of the short stipe and the glutinous pileus. However, the light brown color of pileus when young, the fine glandular dots at the top of the stipe at maturity, and the yellowish color of the stipe apex separates S. quiescens from S. brevipes, which has an almost chocolate (59 d Br.) colored pileus and a pure white, glandless stipe, when young. Suillus pungens, which occurs in the same habitats is white when immature, and has very strong olivaceous tones before becoming rather similar in color to older S. quiescens. The stipe of S. pungens is much more prominently glandular. The inrolled margin of young S. quiescens is similar to S. glandulosipes or S. neoalbidipes, but in contrast to the latter two species, it has only a very small sterile zone that one might need a hand lens to see. Suillus occidentalis appears to be quite similar in appearance, but at maturity the pileus is lighter colored than that of S. quiescens.
