    "The Boletineae, a suborder of Boletales, is treated here to include the mushroom genera assigned to the Boletaceae by Singer. Genera such as Boletinellus, Gyrodon, Gyroporus, Phlebopus, and Suillus belong in the Sclerodermatineae and the Suillineae based on robust phylogenetic inferences. Paxillioid taxa are being updated. Essentially, fleshy mushrooms with pores (rarely lamellae) and divergent trama in the hymenophore are included."
