I hardly even see the difference between them… have only noticed that the veil on the pure white ones usually gets pink.

Schaeffer’s illustration of A. bulbosa is white; so this entity is A. bulbosa var. bulbosa (autonym).

Nice pictures.

Andreas Gminder wrote me that he thinks the white specimens of A. bulbosa are just albino specimens and that distinction of a variety is not meaningful. Do you have an opinion on this?

Very best,
