A. sinapina and A. solidipes

A. sinapina and A. solidipes are supposedly similar in appearance and overlap in range and host tree preference, but in this key:
It mentions that A. sinapina can be distinguished by having a yellow universal veil which covers the mushrooms in yellow tufts, BUT that the yellow form of this species has NOT been observed in the West….. This confuses me because I often find yellow tufted Armillaria in Northern CA, and here this cluster from WA is clearly covered in yellow fibrils on the pileus and stipe; so I am not sure what that is supposed to mean, other than perhaps the yellow form was overlooked on the West.
