Yes. Thanks for the excellent proofreading.
S. punctatipes is indeed in both Suillus placidus clade sensu Ngyuen et al. and
Suillus placidus-subalpinus-anomalus group.

These MO clades and groups are still “under construction”. I’ll add a note about that.

Joseph, isn’t S. punctipes in the placidus clade as well?
