I don't know of any off the top of my head, but it would
be really surprising to me if none exist.  I've actually
always wondered about whether there might be a true symbiosis
between Suillus and Chroogomphus/Gomphidius.  In Northern
California they co-occur with such regularity it is hard
to believe that there isn't some kind of connection.  I've
also heard similar speculation about our coastal form of
Boletus edulis and Amanita muscaria.
