2407 Lactura subfervens ?
I will bet that this is 2407 Lactura subfervens. I just got some identified by DNA barcoding.
See 2407 BG and 2407 BG - now waiting on a new guide page for it.

 
Indeed!
An excellent match! Much better than L. basistriga. Been wondering about these for a while, we saw them a lot in OK (I think I may have another one from W. OK too) but they didn't look quite right...

Thank you!
