Wood Hedgehog - Hydnum repandum possibly

These are pores, not needles,

These are pores, not needles, so I don't think it is the Hedgehog. It looks more like Suillus grevillei (was there Larch close by?). A boletus anyway, not a xerocomus.

would say Suillus,sticky cap, hedgehog with cream white dry cap and has spines not pores,would help if photograph's were taken of the underside and stem,plus habitat,as it is guess work when only the cap is photographed.
