Suillus granulatus is a pored mushroom of the genus Suillus in the Suillaceae family. It is similar to the related S. luteus, but can be distinguished by its ringless stalk. Like S. luteus, it is an edible mushroom that often grows in a symbiosis (Mycorrhiza) with pine.

Suillus granulatus sometimes causes contact dermatitis to those who handle it.

A native to the northern hemisphere, it has also been introduced into Australia under Pinus radiata.
