Difference

The name you proposed is reserved for the European species that is a hard pine associate. The second name means “granulatus” in the sense of American authors. What we collect in the USA/North America under eastern white pines is actually a genetically distinct entity even though it looks very similar the European species. Recently, S. weaverae was proposed for the NA “granulatus” based on the results of a sequencing effort of the entire genus (Mycologia 2016, 108(6), pp. 16-106), but weaverae has a very different morphology that never left any doubt in the minds of the esteemed scientists who described it some 50 years ago that the two are not conspecific.
Some folks on MO think that thorough reconciliation of the mophological and molecular data of the weaverae type with those of “granulatus” and sequencing of collections of the latter from a wide geographic range is in order. Others have already accepted the name change. There are a number of discussion on this topic here on MO, but I cannot recall observations numbers readily.

May I ask?

What’s the difference between those two names? Really confused.
