From what you’ve said, it sounds as though yuo perceived a single taxon. I can’t do a better job than you. You were holding them in your hands. I’m looking at pictures you say are really not correctly representing the color.


Good point.

I should have made two separate observations. The first pics is its’ own observation. The rest, another. The second ones were as snow white as the first, but were found under very dense canopy. In spite of cleaning the color cast TWICE, I was unable to regain the true colors.

Do you think they’re two different taxa?

Are these all from one collection?

The FIRST photo with snow white caps seems to be aestivalis (any pale yellow tint is restricted to the very center of the cap. I’m not sure of the actual color in the following pictures.
