if there exists a variety from one species you should cite it if you use the name in scientific books thus. For example, there is a variety of BOLETUS EDULIS the variety AURANTIORUBER. You write BOLETUS EDULIS VAR. AURANTIORUBER. But you also have to write BOLETUS EDULIS VAR. EDULIS to cite correctly if you refer to the nominal species. But if there is just one species and one name without any variety or subspecies like BOLETUS IMPOLITUS, you don’t have to cite it this way. Of course this is just for scientists and you aren’t obliged to do it here on this site…

I hadn’t heard of the var. either -

but the list to choose from only had 2 varieties to choose from, and that one seemed the best of the 2.

It certainly keys out as S. trullisatus

in Arora’s Mushrooms Demystified, p. 211, and matches the description for that species. I have never heard of var. trullisatus, so cannot comment on that variety.

Corrections or confirmation appreciated as always.
