Looks like you may be right. Haven’t seen that one before. And thanks for providing some information/justification.

makes you think it might be R. lutea and not R. claroflava? (And as I’ve said before, it bugs me when someone votes against a name, as opposed to for one, without giving some reason for doubting that ID; less so if they do at least suggest something else it might be, though.)
