I understand that it may not be enough information but these images are stills from a video of my walk in a grove. I didn't want to pick anything up that I don't know and don't have photos of other parts of the mushroom.

The habitat can be seen in this video - https://youtu.be/CYxaKv_KxDM. I also found many other species in this video, someone may find that interesting.

Very interesting! Yes, presence of a partial veil points toward genus Suillus. But, the habitat (hardwood area) looks wrong for almost all Suillus species (except maybe S. subaureus, which lacks a veil) and the pores don't look like Suillus, too small and not radially arranged. I think this is an example of Paragyrodon sphaerosporus, and uncommon hardwood bolete with a partial veil that partly clings to the cap margin.  http://www.mushroomexpert.com/paragyrodon_sphaerosporus.html
