Is this pale colored form just a variety?

…it’s needless to create new taxa for color morphs included albino forms. But if names are present why not using them?
sorry Gerhard, I just couldn’t resist!
I agree that this is just a color morph, and not worthy of any sort of new species designation.
to all such colour variations but as they please.
There is also a Cantharellus infundibuliformis var. lutescens (now don’t know CRATERELLUS “something”) which always can be found among “normal” specimens, then you have Craterellus cornucopioides fo. lutea and fallax and many others. When you look at Russula it is normal to have a broad variety of color within one species.
this is a highly productive area for this species, with many thousands of fruit bodies produced annually, and many hundreds of humans scouring the woods…stands to reason that there would be a bit of individual variation seen as far as color morphs.
Still, if someone is bound and determined to run the DNA on these forms, I have both of them.
and will dry them, if anyone is interested in looking further.
