Yes it's variegated, but didn't come with a cultivar name. Punctuated the way it is in the database here, 'Variegatus' is the name of a cultivar, not just the variegated version.
It looks a lot like 'Jurassic Park' to which Skylark added a pic. I've given up trying to chase cultivar names for any plant that doesn't come with one, unless it's obvious & a lot of people agree. It's too hard to determine whether they are actual patented cultivar names or just trademarked sales or other cutesy names they use for whatever reasons.

I have 2 diff patterns of variegation of this plant and it looks like I've uploaded pics to both entries. I will ask to move all to the species. TY for bringing this to my attention!

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.
