Possibly, some of these caps were white before staining…

It seems that a couple of the pix show very white caps outside the staining/stained areas. That suggests that they are A. rubescens var. alba Coker, rather than amerirubescens. There is nothing automatic about changing Coker’s name just because we decide that rubescens doesn’t apply in the case of amerirubescens. That doesn’t mean that Coker’s variety alba is automatically moved to a var. of _amerirubescens. If fact, it may prove to be another species. I don’t have enough evidence gathered together at this moment.
