Both MycoBank and IndexFungorum still use Boletinus. It has been said that there is molecular evidence that Boletinus should be integrated in Suillus, but to be honest, I haven’t seen any evidence that makes it necessary..

is not the right genus for this mushroom – it has a hollow stem. According to Mycobank the right name still is Boletinus cavipes.

Boletinus : cap surface dry, felty, made up of a trichoderm. Hymenophore consisting of short, barely separable yellow tubes, pores wide, angular, radially stretched. Hyphae with clamps, without fascicles of encrusted caulocystidia in hymenium and stipe.

Suillus : cap surface viscid, made up of a gelatinous ixotrichoderm. Hymenophore consisting of easily separable tubes, pores small, radially elongated. Hyphae usually without clamps, fasciculate encrusted caulocystidia present.
