Nguyen et al., “Phylogenetic assessment of global Suillus ITS sequences supports morphologically defined species and reveals synonymous and undescribed taxa”; Mycologia 2016, 108(6), pp. 1216–1228:

Suillus grevillei (Klotzsch) Singer was monophyletic (with an 87% bootstrap support) although the clade was split between specimens from North America/ Eurasia and those strictly from Europe. Korhonen et al. (1993) suggested that this group contained two species, where S. grevillei occurring mostly in Europe with lemon-yellow pileus, hyaline hyphae in the pileipellis, and smaller spores compared to S. clintonianus (Peck) Kuntze occurring mostly from Siberia to eastern Asia and in North America with dark reddish-brown pileus, mainly encrusted hyphae in the pileipellis and larger spores. Phylogenetic distance between these two groups, combined with morphological distinction, provide convincing evidence to recognize them as separate species. Therefore, we suggest that the name S. grevillei be reserved for the European taxon and S. clintonianus be applied to the North American/Asian taxon. The occurrence of S. clintonianus in North America and Asia observed by Korhonen et al. (1993) based on morphology and confirmed here with molecular data hints at a biogeographic pattern that may be linked to the distribution of their Larix hosts with which they fruit abundantly.” — p. 1223
