Hello!! Are these porcini mushrooms??? 😃

I'm not seeing the stalk reticulation that one would hope for a b. edulis.

Thanks so much for the quick reply!! 

What type of mushroom do you think they are?

My guess is this represents a species of genus Suillus. Are there pines in the area?

Yes. I found them amongst Ponderosa pines. 

Are these edible? I looked up the botanical name and it mention some are - would these happen to be? They smell so beautiful...

With my  research this morning, looks like I have found Sillius Brevipes. 👍🏻🙏🏻👊🏻

Any thoughts on how these can be stored?

Suillus species are mainly considered to be edible, although some people report gastrointestinal distress if the slimy cap cuticle is consumed (for a few species). Peeling the cap cuticle off a bunch of Suillus mushrooms can take some time/patience. With a few exceptions, edible Suillus mushrooms are not considered to be choice edibles. 

Suillus mushrooms may be dehydrated and stored in jars. Make sure they're good and dry! A Russian friend of mine says he likes them pickled.
