May be one of the yellow species

I’ve seen ones like this before that appear to be non-yellow, but on closer inspection it’s just covered with pruina and yellow is showing through in places. The Sonoran Flora suggests several possible species, but none should occur where you are, but it doesn’t claim to cover your area either. (A. calcarea, A. epilutescens, etc.)
