I see the yellow colored ones all the time. Maybe 1 in 10 turn green over time. I believe they are infected by something else.

less Leotia species instead of more species?

I still think they are distinct but now I have a bit of doubt…

Nice observation

Side-by-side makes you wonder if they are the same species with a color variation or if they are actually two different non-interbreding groups.
