I can’t weigh in… these are California specimens.

As for looking different, Tao: these are older specimens (darker pinkish-brown gills)

It’s interesting

These specimens look different from the ones I found several weeks ago.

reticulatus is the older name, and if there are two taxa recognized at forma or variety level, these are under reticulatus, not under aleuriatus.

who has decided that they are the same species?
Not that it proves anything, but the collections with these two names in GenBank are not the same species.
Funga Nordica treats them as two forms of reticulatus:
B. reticulatus (Pers.: Fr.) Ricken f. reticulatus and
B. reticulatus f. aleuriatus (Fr.: Fr.) Enderle

Index Fungorum

gives Bolbitius aleuriatus as a synonym of B. reticulatus.
The latter is the oldest name (1798), with aleuriatus dating from 1815, both names have been sanctioned by Fries.

Index fungorum says the current name for this species is Bolbitius reticulatus? Did that change? Do they represent 2 separate species now?
