Remarks: This suillus   group species, according to Pilato & Lisi (2006), has a Neotropic distribution that requires a revision. The original description (de Barros 1939 a) is now dated and all type material lost. Pilato & Lisi (2006) provided a description based on Mexican specimens but it would need new samples from the type locale to verify the relationship. This species has been reported from Europe and Central America ( McInnes 1994 a, Kaczmarek et al. 2014 a).
