Recognized by sight: reminds me of what we called maculata when I lived there, but I doubt that name holds much water.

cremoricolor issues

I was already hesitant from the latter two.

I’ve found 2x “typical” white/fast-acrid ones here (obs 192341 and obs 195049).

The blatantly red one here seemed a little distinct in the bunch color-wise, but the identical location and taste development trumped that for me.

I wonder whether the apparent “cremoricolor” vs ""maculata"" are the same as Kevin’s obs 1215939 and obs 197520.

I dunno

if R. cremoricolor occurs that far south. Also, it should be pretty immediately strongly acrid, and often more evenly colored (either white or red, only occasionally mottled with both).
