why I didn’t go with the species (from Mushroomexpert.com).

“Leucoagaricus rubrotinctus demonstrates considerable variability in cap color in the Pacific Northwest, according to Smith (1979). Arora (1986) describes a browner mushroom, and Wood & Stevens (2002) illustrate and describe a smaller, browner mushroom in California. According to Halling (1997), “there are several American collections that show differences in size of spores, size and shape of cheilocystidia, among other features. These entities may deserve recognition at varietal rank.”
