Interesting how pale this collection is

I’m willing to take Doug’s word that this is L. rubrilacteus, but I wonder what the conditions are for this paler/greener form. It’s not completely outside my experience with this species. I was just reviewing all the collections for this species and they seem to fall into two color forms.
