The edible Suillus albivelatus differs in that the cap is orangey brown, the stem has a fleeting ring zone, and the cap edge retains remnants of the veil. The edible Suillus granulatus differs in that the cap is more broadly convex, the cap's coloration is less even, and the stem has prominent glandular dots when young. The edible Suillus borealis differs in that the edge of the cap retains remnants of the partial veil, at least for some time, and the stem discolors to ocher or reddish brown when bruised/handled.
