Albinistic traits can vary and individuals are usually classified as true albino, partial albino, or leucistic.
I took this from another OMC it was written by PsychedelicTarantula, and maybe where some confusion stems from. This is regarding A+;
I've been trying to clear this up since I put this strain into the hobby. There is no such thing as Albino A+. This is a misnomer. It is LA+. It is a Leucistic strain. This strain retains some pigment and the spores are still dark. True albinos retain no pigment and have clear spores. If you guys could help me out here by helping to spread this I'd appreciate this. It seems people always revert back to calling it an albino. This drives me crazy lol...it was my baby.
Whereas the parent of APE, Pf Albino was a true albino, the albino trait is recessive and is obviously not breeding true. So a percentage not all, are true albinos which would seem to have invisible spores and the rest partial albinos or even leucistic(both of these could theoretically produce purple spores).
Once again if all or most of the spores are purple in the syringes, that may be the trick they are using to collect viable spores. And the purple spore producing not true albino individuals may be more viable and easier to collect than the true albinos. The purple spores would still carry the albino gene and produce albino offspring when selfed.
(and the description would still be technically correct, the true albinos have clear spores that look white in large amounts) And just leave out the part about collecting the purple ones if you want viable spores??
