I’m sure the preferred name on MO will be changed in due course :)

Be as it may, but the same time, M. Kuo’s recent research shows that this species along with L. rubropunctum (also formerly in Boletus) do not belong to Leccinum s. s. but instead cluster with Xerocomus s. s..
See http://www.mushroomexpert.com/leccinumposter.pdf for further details.
The same body of research also suggests that B. longicurvipes should be moved to Leccinum.

Was Boletus subglabripes

preferred name now Leccinum subglabripes. See page 163 of NA Boletes by BRB and http://www.mushroomexpert.com/leccinum_subglabripes.html.

Do not believe this is a Leccinum – they seldom if ever have yellow pores – what trees were nearby?
