Ok. The reason I asked was because the dates for the pics were different. Thanks for the clarification.

The collection date is at the top of the observation

When was the collection date? It looks like the paler form of Augustus that I found about a month ago. After finding one of the more “traditional” looking forms of Augustus at almost the same time and tasting both side by side, there was some definite differences in flavor, although both had an almondy taste. In other words, I have a feeling that they might be separate species, but I have no idea.
