here in CA our version of this mushroom looks very different than the Floccularia luteovirens that I have seen in CO.

F. albolanaripes has distinctive brown tones in its cap, not the exclusively bright yellow scales on cap and stipe found in luteovirens. Somewhere, there is probably a bar code that shows the genetic differences, too.
one other anecdotal difference is that the folks in CO enjoy eating their bright yellow floccularia, whereas here in CA I don’t know anyone that eats these! (at least more than once).

this is not the white variety

so I don’t see any reason why not to call it Floccularia luteovirens f. luteovirens ???
