Recognized by sight: the most commonly collected, dried and sold bolete in the Neotropics. a hitchhiker on introduced Monterrey Pine. There are two festivals in Bolivia centered around this sp. I have more than once seen Boletus edulis scrawled across packaging which is clearly Suillus, though this one may actually be Boletus s.s.

Suillus is rare in this area and Boletus edulis is common and widely eaten.
