Wildlife relationships: 

could this be Suillus collinitus or Suillus granulatus?

Underneath 200 year old beech trees and across from the 2nd largest Oak I have seen in Wicklow there was a rich panoply of fungi species.  Covered in moss and soft spray from the river a great habitat for wildlife.

Very shiny wax Cap. Color  beautiful deep rust chestnut  with a stem colored sulphur yellow with stripes of crimson slightly swollen at the base. Surrounded by Beech and Oak trees . In the company of wrinkled club and a bright yellow orange coral fungi ( perhaps Meadow Coral) but it had been eaten but the color was so rich it could only be one of these rich orange species.
