but different colour forms of lutescens (var. axanthus is the white and grey one).

appear to be mainly white and gray, while others are yellow and brown. The photo second from the top shows this contrast. Are these all the same type?

I have noted color variations in my collections of C. tubaeformis.

Interesting

So, this particular colour form actually has a name, that’s nice!

Andreas, I can’t find the journal you are referring to online, but I found a similar picture at http://naturalistes-st-lupicin.com:
