the same specimens? The upper photo appears to be an unusual C. subalbidus with some light yellowish-stains on the stipe. The lower photo certainly appears to be C. formosus, at least from the top. But if both photos are of the same collection, is it possible the light exposure changed? The lower is definately yellowish-orange, the color of C. formosus. The upper looks considerably more white.
