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.

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:
