Suillus bovinus (Koeienboleet (BE) / Jersey cow mushroom (EN) / Kuhröhrling (DE) / Bolet des bouviers (FR)) & Gomphidius roseus (Roze spijkerzwam (BE) / Rosy spike-cap (EN) / Rosenroter Schmierling (DE) / Gomphide rose (FR)).
I already mentioned the strange relationship between those two species and Pinus sylvestris in my description on the image on 13/11/2010: Gomphideus roseus is a parasite, feeding on the mycorrhizae created by Suillus bovinus and Pinus sylvestris. In this image you can see the typical way in which both fungi-species are usually found: growing very close together.
